Marquette Presents

DEPRESSION - The Intersection of Hope, Medicine and Research

With the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reporting that 10 percent of adults in the U.S. are affected by depression, the need to destigmatize this condition is long overdue. Marquette invites you to attend this complimentary breakfast forum - the first in a new research series the College of Health Sciences will host on issues of community health.

Monday, Sept. 17

7:15 a.m. Complimentary continental breakfast
7:45 a.m. Program begins; networking to follow
9:00 a.m. Event concludes

Alumni Memorial Union - Grand Ballroom
1442 W. Wisconsin Ave. Marquette campus

The campus program will tackle head-on what neuroscience researchers and mental health providers are learning about depression. The perspective of the forum experts is “Where there is a biological basis, there is hope for a biological treatment.”

Special guest panelists include:

  • Dr. Peter M. Lake, medical director, Rogers Memorial Hospital - Oconomowoc, Child and Adolescent Center

  • Suzy Favor Hamilton, Olympic runner successfully coping with depression

  • Dr. Paul Gasser, assistant professor, Department of Biomedical Sciences, Marquette University College of Health Sciences
