Presentations

Allen Hornblum, assistant professor of geography and urban studies in the College of Liberal Arts, recently presented an invited lecture on American medical ethics during the Cold War at Brown University.

Michael P. McNeil, director of the Temple Health Empowerment Office, recently co-presented the opening keynote address at the 2005 annual meeting of the Mid-Atlantic College Health Association in Lancaster, Pa. The session, “Linking Health Promotion With Student Academic Success,” started the conference by addressing how college health, and health promotion specifically, can support the academic mission of the institution. Along with co-presenter Bryan Helminiak of the University of St. Thomas (Minn.), McNeil shared preliminary findings from their pilot study showing that college students who participate in health-related programs or activities appear to perform better academically. Additionally, the session provided six implications for practice designed to strengthen the link between the work in college health and the academic mission of higher education.
