Hodges University will host a panel discussion on the current state of the nation on November 4, 2010, from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm at the University’s School of Technology building on its Naples campus, 2655 Northbrooke Drive.
Our world is ever changing, and has been a whirlwind for the past several years. Where do we stand today? What changes have we seen as a result of recent events? What does our future look like? This facilitated forum will attempt to answer some of these questions. A panel of educators will touch on the areas of healthcare, economics, the business world, ethics, academia, and more.
Participating in the discussion will be Hodges faculty members, including Dr. Carlene Harrison, Dean of the School of Allied Health, who will discuss issues such as obesity, smoking cessation, physician shortages, and disease prevention, as well as personalized medicine developments and other new scientific "health" developments that will affect us in the future.
Dr. Aysegul Timur, Program Chair for the Business Administration and Public Administration programs, will look at the trends that will affect our economy in the near future.
John Mayer, professor of Business Administration, will discuss the differences between management and leadership, and the types of management needed as we face 2011 and beyond.
Also joining the panel will be Erik Heben, Managing Partner and Chief Investment Strategist with Private Wealth Consultants, an independent financial consulting firm with offices in Fort Myers and Baltimore, MD. He is also a Managing Partner of Private Wealth Tax Advisory, a full service tax advisory firm.
There is no charge to attend this lively panel discussion but reservations are required. For more information, please contact Christine Wheeler at (239) 598-6210.
