Description

Poverty, Health, Education and Families in Urban Contexts: Lessons from Henrietta Lacks' Family discussion group is sponsored by College of Education and Health Sciences and will cover a wide variety of topics that draw from film Bringing Henrietta To Life and focus on what we can learn from the presentation.

Discussion Facilitators:

Dr. Judy Ausherman (Health & Human Performance)

Dr. Ausherman is a graduate of The University of Tennessee in Knoxville. She joined the CSU faculty in 1993. Her teaching and research interest include promoting teacher education excellence, coordinated school health program evaluation, health literacy and service learning. She also is working on developing new on-line courses to teach health education.

Her goal in life is to make the world a better place for everyone to live by promoting, protecting, and valuing her own health and the health of others.

Dr. Anne Galletta (Curriculum & Foundations)

Dr. Galletta earned her Ph.D. in Social Psychology from the Graduate School and University Center of the City University of New York. She began her career as a language arts teacher at the middle school level, and later conducted research and provided technical assistance to schools and school districts at the Academy for Educational Development (AED) in New York City. Her research focus is educational change within newly created small public high schools and within desegregated schools, particularly in terms of policy development, classroom practice, and social context. Dr. Galletta collaborates with community-based organizations and public school systems in conducting research designed to engage educators and the community in school reform as well as contribute to the literature on educational change. She uses a qualitative approach in her research, with particular strengths in ethnography, participatory action research, and oral history.
