We’ve got two great speakers for you at MCMLA 2017!

Come hear our morning keynote speaker, Dr. Rebecca Johnson, talk on Humans and Animals Together: Wellness for Both Ends of the Lead. As the Director of MU’s Research Center for Human-Animal Interaction, Dr. Johnson is an expert on the scientific evidence underpinning our bonds with our pets and other animals. Her research shows that companion animals may provide a unique source of social support and facilitate motivation for exercise and other wellness-promoting behaviors. More about Dr. Johnson

At lunch, Lise Saffran will speak on Emotional Life: Creative Writing and Public Health. As the Director of MU’s Masters in Public Health program, Ms. Saffran argues for including art and literature in public health education. Her work with public health storytelling helps practitioners connect not only with their own emotions but also with the emotional lives of others. More about Lise Saffran
