How can we protect the historic Paris climate accord that was brought into force on November 4? The hard work begins now. The Paris accord is a giant step forward, but at the same time more ambitious actions such as earlier and deeper emissions cuts are needed to create a world in which all can thrive. So, does the agreement deliver us from climate catastrophe, or is it another diplomatic disappointment? Can we build an economy powered by clean, renewable energy in time?

The Honors College climate change series presents John Sterman of the MIT Sloan School of Management on "From Climate Change to Political and Personal Change: Building a Prosperous, Sustainable World".

“Patient Privacy and Health Information Exchanges”
Co-sponsored with the Department of Biomedical Informatics

Abstract: Learning health care systems (LHCS) propose to advance health care by taking advantage of increasing efficiencies in data collection and analysis and information dissemination. A major premise of LHCS is broad and continuous access to patient data, extracted at the point of care, and stored and used primarily in de-identified form. Bioethicists debate whether patients should accept reduced privacy of health care data as a condition of benefitting from LHCS or whether explicit agreement by patients to the use of their health care information remains essential. The talk will expand on these points and raise questions about how the bioethics debate has interpreted recent studies on patient attitudes concerning sharing health care information.

Learn how you and your team can provide innovative outcomes by intentionally encouraging creativity across people, processes, and your culture. You will look at the critical role that leaders play in fostering creativity and explore ways that you can become more successful at producing innovative solutions when faced with difficult, new challenges. This program is right for you if you've ever been asked to 'innovate' or 'think differently' and did not know where to start. Creativity is a skill that can be learned. Leaders throughout the institution who wish to learn a more disciplined approach to thinking differently will learn to work in a team setting to be more creative and innovative. This will be appropriate for both academic and non-academic leaders.

Cathedral of Learning

Center on Race and Social Problems is proud to announce Professor Jasmine Gonzales Rose of Pitt Law as the speaker for the first lecture in the Reed Smith LLP Spring 2017 Speaker Series.


Jasmine Gonzales Rose is a critical proceduralist and is particularly interested in the intersections of race and language with two areas: juries and Evidence law. She is the nation's leading expert on juror language disenfranchisement and juror language accommodation and recently discussed this topic on NPR's LatinoUSA.

"Criminal defendants have the most to lose when they are sitting trial," Gonzales Rose says. "They're not having a jury pool that is fairly representative of the community. They are not having the opportunity to be judged by a jury of their peers, which is a fundamental right under the fair cross-section requirement of the Sixth Amendment."
