Clinton School speaker this afternoon

During the summer, the Clinton School speaker series slows down from the numerous speakers each week.  They do, however, continue to offer compelling programs.

This evening from 5pm to 6pm, the Clinton School is playing host to Dr. Mindy Fullilove, a research psychiatrist at New York State Psychiatric Institute and a professor of clinical psychiatry and public health at Columbia University.  Dr. Fullilove will give a lecture titled, “Neighbor Like You Mean It: A Social Psychiatrist’s Views on Urban Life in the 21st Century,” about the impact of urban development and renewal on the health and well being of urban residents.

From her research, Fullilove has published “Root Shock: How Tearing Up City Neighborhoods Hurts America and What We Can Do About It,” and “The House of Joshua: Meditations on Family and Place.”

The program will be at Sturgis Hall in Clinton Presidential Park from 5pm to 6pm.
