Well-Known Occupational Health Researcher Delivers McAuley Lecture

FEBRUARY 26, 2015 - The latest speaker in the McAuley Lecture Series at the School of Nursing & Health Studies addressed occupational health among immigrant and other disadvantaged populations.

Marc B. Schenker, MD, MPH, a professor in the Department of Public Health Sciences at the University of California at Davis School of Medicine and founding director of the Migration and Health Research Center at UC Davis and UC Berkeley, came to Georgetown February 23 and spoke to an audience of about 80 students, faculty, and staff gathered in Copley Formal Lounge.

Particia Cloonan, PhD, RN, the school's interim dean welcomed him and noted that Georgetown is a good setting to discuss this topic.

“It absolutely resonates in a particularly poignant way with this university’s Catholic and Jesuit tradition, which calls upon us to practice, research, serve, and teach in ways that contribute to the common good with a particular focus on the marginalized and underserved,” she says.

Cloonan also thanked Georgetown parents Brian and Jane McAuley, who fund the lecture series, and colleague Rosemary Sokas, MD, MOH, chair of the school's Department of Human Science, who helped organize this talk within the series.
