Kent State’s College of Public Health Launches Speaker SeriesPosted Oct. 18, 2010
Kent State University’s College of Public Health is launching a speaker series with the first inaugural speaker scheduled for noon on Wednesday, Oct. 27, in Kent State’s Moulton Hall Ballroom. The first featured speaker is Susan J. Bondy, an associate professor at the University of Toronto’s Dalla Lana School of Public Health. Dr. Bondy is a social epidemiologist with more than 20 years of research experience in Canada. Her work has addressed social determinants of health across both chronic and infectious diseases. She will be speaking about the application of social epidemiological methods to tobacco prevention and control.
The talk will be streamed live at www.ksutube.kent.edu/live/watchstream.php?playthis=7632 and available on the college’s website at www.kent.edu/publichealth/speakerseries.
The speaker series is sponsored by Kent State’s College of Public Health and the Public Health Student Alliance.
The College of Public Health at Kent State is Ohio’s second college of public health. It was established to help meet the demonstrated state and national need for public health professionals. According to a February 2008 report by the Association of Schools of Public Health, America will need 250,000 more public health workers by 2020 – a well-educated, technologically savvy and multidisciplinary workforce that includes epidemiologists, biostatisticians, health educators, health program administrators, health policy analysts, public health physicians and nurses, and occupational and environmental health specialists.
