We are delighted to welcome Vic Strecher, PhD back to Stanford for an encore presentation of his deeply inspirational and thought-provoking talk on April 26th. Please join us!

Victor J. Strecher, PhD, MPH
Professor and Director for Innovation and Social Entrepreneurship
University of Michigan School of Public Health

Dr. Strecher received his PhD in Health Behavior and Health Education at the University of Michigan School of Public Health in 1983. Since 1995, Dr. Strecher has been a Professor in the UM School of Public Health and until 2009, Director of Cancer Prevention and Control at the UM Comprehensive Cancer Center. Dr. Strecher founded the UM Center for Health Communications Research (http://chcr.umich.edu/), a collaborative research-focused organization of health and behavioral scientists, educators, software engineers, and artists. Through this Center, Dr. Strecher has been a leading investigator on over $45 million in grant-funded studies of computer-based interactive communications for health-related behavior change and decision-making. In 1998, Dr. Strecher founded HealthMedia Inc. (http://www.healthmedia.com/), an Ann Arbor-based company that has grown to over 185 employees, developing and disseminating award-winning tailored health interventions for health promotion, disease prevention, behavioral health, and disease management to millions of users through health plans, employers, pharmaceutical companies and governments in North America, Europe, and Asia. In 2008 HealthMedia Inc. was purchased by Johnson & Johnson as their initial investment in the area of prevention and wellness. Currently, as the newly appointed Director for Innovation and Social Entrepreneurship, Dr. Strecher is working in the UM School of Public Health to create an environment that promotes more direct dissemination of research and teaching efforts to improve the public’s health nationally and globally.
