Depression Center Colloquium Series

For health professionals and researchers with an interest in depression and related illnesses.

Learning Objectives
For each Colloquium Series presentation, the learning objectives are:

To help physicians, researchers, social workers, psychologists, and other health care professionals to increase their knowledge of the epidemiology, etiology, and treatment of depression. With greater understanding of recent advances in depression research and new treatment modalities, clinicians can make more informed decisions regarding patient care and help to translate research into practice.

All programs run from 11:45 AM - 1:30 PM in the Rachel Upjohn Building auditorium (Garden Level), and offers 1.5 CE credits for psychologists, psychiatrists, and social workers. There is no charge for attendance, and a pizza lunch is provided for those who register. For each colloquium, please arrive at 11:45 AM for lunch. The first speaker will begin promptly at 12 PM.
