Naratil Family Health and Human Values Lecture Series

'

Started in 1994, the Health and Human Values Lecture Series is an annual series of lectures, formerly supported by a grant from the Johnson and Johnson Family of Companies. In 2015, thanks to the generosity of the Naratil Family, the series was once again funded and renamed as the Naratil Family Health and Human Values Lecture Series. The series continues its committment today to educating nursing students, practicing nurses, other health professionals and the lay public on key health-related issues.

Each lecture series focuses on an important health theme across the academic year and also encompasses the M. Louise Fitzpatrick Award for Transformative Leadership lecture and ceremony which celebrates the recipient’s extraordinary leadership and far-reaching impact on society. All lectures are held on Villanova University’s campus and are free and open to the community.

The Fitzpatrick College of Nursing is accredited as a provider of continuing nursing edcuation by the American Nurses Credentialing Center Commission on Accreditation. By attending this event, you will earn 1 contact hour. (registration required)
