Winter 2017 Lecture Series

Wednesday, 15th February 2017

Academic Services invites you to attend the first of two Winter 2017 Lecture Series events, featuring Dr. Chris Lo from the Psychology program at the University of Guelph-Humber. Cancer is more than an individual disease. It affects everyone—from families and loved ones to coworkers and institutional supports. An advanced disease is a special circumstance in which one’s life is threatened, producing a confrontation with mortality that raises many questions about the meaning and value of one’s life. Please join us on Wednesday, February 15th, 2017 from 11:10am – 1:10pm for Dr. Lo’s lecture: “The Meaning of Life and the Confrontation with Death.” In his presentation, he will also highlight suggestions of how to support individuals and their friends and families who may be dealing with a diagnosis of advanced disease. Note: This lecture will contain content around the subject of death and dying, which may be disturbing to some audiences. A light lunch will be served. Registration is very limited! Please RSVP to academicservices@guelphhumber.ca, and state any dietary restrictions.
