GMS Art Exhibit: Growing Older, Growing Stronger

Wednesday, February 6, 2013, 4:00pm-6:00pm, Division of Graduate Medical Sciences, L-317, 72 East Concord Street, Boston, MA 02118

Adults with intellectual disabilities (ID) are living longer than ever before, but aging and elderly women with ID face significant health disparities and other challenges. This population can sometimes be invisible. Growing Older, Growing Stronger is a photography exhibit featuring the work of aging women with ID. It was produced using Photo Voice, a participatory research technique where participants become co-researchers in the project and are given cameras and asked to document their worlds. This exhibit of co-researcher photography explores themes of community inclusion, belonging, relationships, loss and joy, as documented by the artist co-researchers. This project is part of GMS’s Medical Anthropology and Cross-Cultural Practice master’s student Nechama Greenwood’s thesis work researching aging with ID. Co-researcher artists will be on hand to answer questions and light refreshments will be served.

Working in a Multicultural Group

June 8th, 2012 in test

Featuring:  Anne Copeland, PhD
Founder and Executive Director, the Interchange Institute

Tuesday, June 19 3:30 – 5:00 pm Wilkins Boardroom 120 Evans, 72 East Concord St.

Today’s university is a mini-United Nations. The most productive labs, departments and work groups are the ones that understand the cultural values that affect relationships, communication style and scientific reasoning, and whose members share the ability to recognize and adapt to these differences. When everyone on a team – Americans and internationals alike – shares an understanding of these cultural dimensions and a vocabulary for discussing them in a neutral, balanced way, they can proceed to their shared core work more quickly and productively. In this workshop, we will briefly review the international research on cultural values that affect work assumptions and relationships, and differences in scientific reasoning approaches that affect collaborations in multicultural teams. We will look at core cultural values in communication style and work relationships, including relationships between lab directors and staff, decision-making, work commitment, and other topics suggested by attendees.

Open to all postdocs, PhD students, faculty, and staff

Transition from PhD Chemist to Filmmaker, April 5 Lecture

April 3rd, 2012 in Academics, General News, Postdocs, test

Chemist and filmmaker Valerie Weiss, PhD will be on the Medical Campus Thursday, April 5, from 2-3 p.m. in room L-112, BUSM Instructional Building, to talk about her film, Losing Control. She will discuss how she transitioned from a successful career in science to filmmaking. All students, faculty and staff are invited to this seminar. Dr. Weiss will show the film trailer and several clips from the film.

Losing Control, her first feature film, is a romantic comedy based on her experience in a Harvard University lab, filmed in Cambridge and Boston. It is being shown at the Kendall Square Cinema this Friday, April 6. She will be available at the screening for Q&A.

So take a break from studying or work, learn how she transitioned from science to film; how being a scientist prepared her well for her career as a filmmaker, a career in which she wears many hats, entrepreneur, creator, fundraiser, manager, promoter; and why she thinks science is a great springboard to many careers.

There is more information about the film at  http://coveringmedia.com/movie/2012/03/losing-control.html
