Please join us on Thursday, Nov. 16 from 1-2:30 p.m. in room 205 of Falvey Library for a talk by the 2023 Outstanding Faculty Research Award recipient, Elizabeth Burgess Dowdell, PhD, RN, AFN-C, FAAN, Professor & Coordinator Undergraduate Research, M. Louise Fitzpatrick College of Nursing, Villanova University. Dr. Dowdell will be giving a talk titled “Illuminating Health Risks Facing Vulnerable Populations: A Call to Action.”
Vulnerable populations have often experienced significant trauma and display high-risk behaviors which influence their health outcomes. Exploring the interrelationships among various forms of victimization, cyber aggression, and exposure to violence has led to new strategies for risk profiling and understanding perilous behaviors across the lifespan. Populations discussed will include infant abductions, victims of violence, high-risk online behaviors, mass shootings, missing and murdered Native American Indigenous women as a call to action in order to inform.
This ACS-approved event is part of the Scholarship@Villanova Lecture Series. It is co-sponsored by Falvey Library and the Office of the Provost and is free and open to all. Light refreshments will be served.
