The 2014-2015 Wisdom and Well-Being Speaker Series
Be Wise. Be Well.

with Margaret Kern, Ph.D

University of Pennsylvania

Some people thrive in life; others struggle. At a broad level, my research addresses the question of who flourishes and why. More specifically, my research focuses on two related areas: (a) understanding and measuring healthy functioning, and (b) evaluating sophisticated theories of psychosocial processes underlying health over time. I incorporate a lifespan perspective, innovative quantitative methods, and interdisciplinary collaboration throughout my research.

Date: June 27, 2014
Time: Noon to 1 p.m.
Free lunch will be served at 11:30 a.m.

The topics presented at the Wisdom and Well-Being Speaker Series focus on:

  • Living a more meaningful life
  • Achieving more enjoyment from work
  • Creating communities that foster wisdom and well-being
