Join us for a Fireside Chat with Jeanne Haggerty, the Executive Vice President, Government Affairs and External Relations of BIO - The Biotechnology Innovation Organization.  James will talk with Jeanne about The Future of State Bio-Ecosystems, and what she thinks it will take to make them compelling in the years to come!

Mayda Colón and Zayra Taranto, founders of Trabalis Editores, will speak about their singular approach to publishing in Puerto Rico (they own their own printing press and use the royalties ceded by their world renown authors to publish new writers). In the aftermath of Hurricane María they organized several readings and published a series of books of historical importance (Bitácora de una transmisión radial, transcripciones de una histórica transmisión radial durante el Huracán María desde Wapa radio, Sandra Rodríguez Cotto; Huracanada, Mayra Santos-Febres, amongst others).

Over the next few years, the Latin American Writers Series will showcase the most representative writers  of the continent and serve as an archive of their achievements.  Ecuadorian writer and Tulane’s Greenleaf Scholar-in-Residence,  Gabriela Alemán will conduct in-depth interviews with authors that address  a territory defined by massive migrations, multiple forms of violence, economic precariousness and environmental struggles.

One of the challenges for physicians in an era of patient-centered care is to close the deal for treatment. Physicians may have to say no when patients make inappropriate treatment requests (as in opioids for chronic pain), or insist on treatment when patients resist (as in vaccination refusal). In this talk, I examine how neurologists overcome resistance against medication recommendations for pediatric patients with epilepsy. Neurologists meet these grounds with three corresponding persuasion strategies ranging from pressuring, to coaxing, to accommodating.
