Get Ready for the Lunchtime Lectures: Spring Programs

Prof. Margaret Knight, UMass Lowell

The hugely successful Lunchtime Lectures series at the UMass Lowell Inn & Conference Center resumes on Monday, March 28, at 12 noon, with Prof. Margaret Knight of the UMass Lowell Dept. of Nursing taking a close look at “Diversity in Health Care Professions,” an important topic as hospitals, medical centers, clinics, and others in the health care field seek to better meet the needs of the public and to have their organizations reflect the communities they serve. Strategies for increasing diversity in one field should be of interest to people in other disciplines and professions, whether in banking, law, education, building trades, tech industries, etc.

This program, free and open to the public, begins promptly at 12 noon and includes a light buffet lunch. Reservations are required (seating is limited to 100 persons). To reserve a seat, contact or call 978-934-3107.

The Lunchtime Lectures are a special program of the Moses Greeley Parker Lectures presented in cooperation with the UMass Lowell Center for Arts and Ideas and Middlesex Community College.

On Monday, April 25, at 12 noon, Prof. Regina Panasuk of UMass Lowell’s Graduate School of Education will talk about “Transforming Learning with Technology: Reality and Controversy,” a topic that should be of interest to anyone concerned about education, the benefits of new technology, and how people of all ages learn.
