Upcoming Events


CNHP Reads The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

Tuesday, April 20, 2021 • 5 – 6 p.m.

Join students, faculty and staff of CNHP to discuss this powerful, important and deeply engaging bestselling novel. This searing book addresses police violence and racism through the eyes of 16-year-old Starr Carter, a young Black woman who moves between her fancy prep school and her poor urban community. Published in 2017, this book raises vital issues that speak to a variety of audiences. We hope to bring together the entire CNHP community to discuss these themes, which are more urgent than ever. This event will be a group discuss as part of the “Tuesday Topics” series, facilitated by students, faculty and staff at CNHP. Please join us.

Book description: Sixteen-year-old Starr Carter moves between two worlds: the poor neighborhood where she lives and the fancy suburban prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Khalil was unarmed. Soon afterward, his death is a national headline. Some are calling him a thug, maybe even a drug dealer and a gangbanger. Protesters are taking to the streets in Khalil's name. Some cops and the local drug lord try to intimidate Starr and her family. What everyone wants to know is: what really went down that night? And the only person alive who can answer that is Starr. But what Starr does--or does not--say could upend her community. It could also endanger her life.

Meaning Well Isn't Always Doing Well

Tuesday, May 18, 2021 • 4 – 5 p.m.

Sometimes we need to get out of our own way to open up the path to inclusion. We will be exploring the parallel and sometimes intersecting roads of thought and action as it relates to making true change. If all we are doing is acknowledging a problem, we may actually be part of the problem. When we act on issues are we having the impact we intend? What does allyship mean to you? We hope you can join us as we explore these ideologies and more.

Presenter:

  • Maurice Cottman, director, Student Center, Multicultural Programming Drexel University

All are welcome! Students, faculty, professional staff and community providers are encouraged to attend. Presented by the Board of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion: Dr. Veronica Carey, Chair.

Ethically Speaking: Infusing Responsible Conduct of Research across the College

Tuesday, May 25, 2021 • 4 – 5 p.m.

According to the NIH: The responsible conduct of research (RCR) is essential to good science. RCR promotes the aims of scientific inquiry, fosters a research environment that enables scientists to work together toward common goals and promotes public confidence in scientific knowledge and progress for the public good. However, there are several serious detrimental effects of research not conducted ethically and responsibly. Please join us to learn more about how we are approaching infusing RCR training among the student, postdoctoral research fellow, research faculty and staff populations to ensure we are in continual conversation to develop and maintain a culture of scientific integrity, which empowers researchers to hold themselves and others to high ethical standards.

Presenter:

  • Rose Ann DiMaria-Ghalili, PhD, RN, CNSC, FASPEN, FAAN, FGSA, associate dean for Interprofessional Research and Development

All are welcome! Students, faculty and professional staff engaged in research are strongly encouraged to attend. Presented by CNHP Research, Innovation and Discovery.
