    arrow-rightMind Brain Behavior Distinguished Harvard Lecture

    Time: 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM

    Location: Yenching Auditorium, Yenching Library, 2 Divinity Ave., Cambridge, MA

    Mind Brain Behavior Distinguished Harvard Lecture: Featuring Professor Mahzarin Banaji

    Group Love: From the moment of birth, every human is a member of many groups. By the opportunities and liberties offered or snatched away, group memberships shape lives ubiquitously and enduringly. Group memberships create affiliations of “us” and “them” and sensitivity to status in social hierarchies.  Human minds reflect these in myriad attitudes and beliefs, which contain deep knowledge about the hidden presence of group love, its surprising absence, and its opposite.  Unveiling them, through a diversity of methods available to experimental psychology, allows understanding the natural and cultivated ways in which group love is elusively tuned up and down. Monday, February 9, 5pm, Yenching Auditorium, Yenching Library, 2 Divinity Ave., Cambridge, MA

    arrow-rightThe Interdependence of Health Risk, Chronic Disease and Mental Illness

    Time: 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM

    Location: Kresge Building, Room 502

    The Interdependence of Health Risk, Chronic Disease and Mental Illness

    Elsie Freeman, MD, MPH
    Senior Research Fellow
    Muskie School, University of Southern Maine

    The Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) is a critical source of health data, providing annual information for states on their resident’s health status. Mental illness questions have only recently been consistently included in the BRFSS in some states. Analysis of Maine BRFSS responses demonstrates strong associations, at the person level, between mental ill health, depression, health risk and chronic disease.  The data suggests that public health surveillance, policies and programs integrating mental health are critical to public health efforts to address health risk and chronic disease.
