Ray Symposium – Register Now
Join us for our 9th annual Ray Symposium, “Numeracy and Health: A Tyranny of Numbers” on Thursday, April 30. This year, our speaker is Ellen Peters, PhD, Professor of Psychology and Director of the Behavioral Decision Making Initiative at The Ohio State University. A recent Institute of Medicine report on Health Literacy and Numeracy points out that there is considerable variation in the way people understand and use numbers in making everyday decisions. Because of the serious implications in making health-related decisions, this symposium will be of importance to any health provider who communicates risk, benefit, or uses numerical data in communicating with patients.
The WesternU College of Pharmacy has made significant advances in research awards during the 2013-2014 year.
