SPECIAL PANTHER SPEAKERS PRESENTATION

A joint presentation with the UNI College of Education Hot Topics in Education webinar series

Mark Grey

Health Literacy in a Changing America             

Originally presented November 18, 2010  

Michele Devlin, professor of health, physical education & leisure services
Mark Grey, professor of sociology, anthropology & criminology 

Health Literacy is defined as the degree to which individuals have the capacity to obtain, process and understand basic health information needed to make appropriate health care decisions.  Studies reveal that 50 percent of all adults in the U.S. have low health literacy and can't understand basic healthcare information. Low health literacy increases the risk of unnecessary treatments, death, illness, medical errors, longer hospital stays, and other complications.  This webinar defines health literacy; describes the economic and human impact of this situation; and discusses strategies for individuals and organizations to improve their ability to understand and express health information more effectively.

"Work-Life Balance:  What It Is and How You Can Achieve It"

Originally presented February 24, 2010

This 60-minute session features UNI professor Adam Butler and his presentation about living a balanced life. Work-life balance is a popular topic in the business press, and many people wish they could lead a more balanced life. In Butler's presentation, "Achieving Work-Life Balance," he argues that the issue of work-life balance is not a management fad and that an imbalanced life creates problems for workers and organizations. Butler conveys scientific research in an entertaining way, proposing steps that individuals and organizations can take to enhance work-life balance.
