We will then host the videos on our YouTube channel and website for later viewing.

    The New Normal: Family Caregiving in the Context of an Aging Society

    Although families have always cared for and supported older adults, the landscape of caregiving is dramatically changing due to unprecedented changes in population dynamics, more people living longer, rise of chronic diseases versus acute care issues, and the absence of a long term care system. Families must assume more care responsibilities than ever before and juggle multiple demands including employment, child rearing and their own health conditions as they too age. In addition, the number of families available to provide what in many cases is extraordinary care is shrinking, thus presenting a critical societal challenge as to who will care for an aging and highly diverse population. Laura N. Gitlin, PhD, distinguished University professor and Dean of the Drexel University College of Nursing and Health Professions, explores the implications of the demographics of an aging society on family caregiving, roles that families assume and the challenges and consequences for health care and preparation of a health care workforce.

    “Forty Years of the Practice of Euthanasia in the Netherlands
    AND
    Reflections on End-of-life Care in the United States”

At the forefront of the practice of euthanasia since its early years in the Netherlands, Dr. Kimsma supports the option of voluntary euthanasia. He is a general practitioner and a lecturer in medical ethics with an international reputation as a spokesperson regarding the arguments, outcomes and the structure of the evolving debate. He is crucially involved in structuring the legal and social conditions of the practice and conditions involved in monitoring euthanasia practice.

  • Reproducing Race

    Wednesday, November 7, 2018

    12:00 PM-1:30 PM

    New College Building Geary B Auditorium 245 N 15th Street Philadelphia, PA

    • Everyone

    Professor Bridges will discuss her book, Reproducing Race: An Ethnography of Pregnancy as a Site of Racialization. The book is a product of eighteen months of fieldwork research conducted in the obstetrics clinic of a large New York City public hospital. The study investigates how race—commonly seen as biological in the medical world—is socially constructed among women dependent on the public healthcare system for prenatal care and childbirth. The research shows how the ‘medicalization’ of social problems reproduces racial stereotypes and governs the bodies of poor women of color.

    Khiara M. Bridges holds a dual appointment at Boston University as an Associate Professor of Anthropology and Associate Professor of Law. She has written many articles concerning, race, class, reproductive rights, and the intersection of the three. Her scholarship has appeared or will soon appear in the Stanford Law Review, the Columbia Law Review, the California Law Review, the Emory Law Journal, the Boston University Law Review, the Fordham Law Review, the Washington Law Review, and the Harvard Civil Rights-Civil Liberties Law Review, among others. In addition to her book Reproducing Race, she has also published The Poverty of Privacy Rights (2017) on Stanford University Press.

    Lifecourse Health Development for Individuals with Neuodevelopmental Conditions: Visualizing a Preferred Future

    Robert Palisano, PT, will discuss oifecourse health development (LCHD), a biopsychosocial model that conceptualizes health development as a nonlinear, adaptive process that occurs through person-environment transactions that change over time. Planning for the future, beginning in childhood, and the timing and social structuring of experiences in “real-life” settings enable desired social participation and prepare children and adolescents for successful transition to adulthood. The perspective that modifiable environmental factors often restrict health development and implications for policy and coordination of services and supports are discussed.
