Ross Parke, an expert in family sciences, is the host of a multidisciplinary lecture series at Iowa State University on the future of healthy families as the 2015-2016 Helen LeBaron Hilton Endowed Chair.
“Each discipline has a different lens on family,” Parke said.
While the Helen LeBaron Hilton Endowed Chair has in the past presented one lecture, this year the committee, along with Parke as chair, will host a series of 10 lectures during the academic year.
The goal is to bring different disciplines together to present a collaborative perspective on the study of families. Each speaker will address the theme of studying the family across multidisciplinary boundaries, including how family is defined, the current knowledge on healthy families, and the future of the field.
Approved for 10.5 CFLE contact hours of continuing education credit.
Lecture dates: September 16, 2015 through April 20, 2016Register
