INDIANAPOLIS – Internationally recognized physician researcher Brian Primack, MD, PhD, will break down media influences on youth and adult health outcomes on October 12 at IUPUI. His address is part of the Somerset CPAs and Advisors Executive Leadership Speaker Series in the Business of Medicine Physician MBA Program at the Kelley School of Business.
“I think we often underestimate the media’s power and the different techniques it uses,” said Primack. “I hope people come away from this presentation with a better understanding of how media affects their daily lives and their families’. For physicians, I hope to deliver new knowledge that empowers them to talk to their patients about these issues.”
Primack is a pioneer in the study of media, technology and healthcare, and his work has substantially influenced international dialogue and policy. At the University of Pittsburgh, he is the dean of the Honors College; professor of medicine and pediatrics and the director for the Center of Media, Technology and Health.
“The Somerset CPAs and Advisors Executive Leadership Speaker Series provides a forum—a training ground—that challenges both our physician MBA students and the greater Indianapolis community to think about the future of healthcare,” said Christopher O.L.H. Porter, professor of management and chair of the Graduate Programs in Business of Medicine. “These discussions will prepare attendees to be healthcare influencers by honing their ability to successfully communicate ideas and grow their networks in medicine and business.”
Held twice annually, the Somerset CPAs and Advisors Executive Leadership Speaker Series is supported by gifts from Somerset CPAs and Advisors and the Kelley Physician MBA class of 2016. These talks feature prominent experts who address some of the most pressing issues in healthcare today.
The fall event will take place on Friday, October 12 from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM at Hine Hall Auditorium on the IUPUI campus, located at 875 W. North Street.
It is free and open to the public, particularly the greater Indianapolis healthcare community.
Visitor parking is available in the North Street (819 W. North St) and Tower (875 W. North St) garages for a nominal rate.
