UBC Research Commons invites you to submit your proposals for 5 minute presentations for the following upcoming FIRE Talk:

Care and Healing: February 8th, 2013

Submit proposals by: January 31, 2013, online submission form here

Join the discussion: http://elred.library.ubc.ca/libs/dashboard/view/3920

Can we only heal individuals or is possible to heal entire cultures? Are scientific and holistic approaches to care and healing necessarily mutually exclusive? Is preventive always better than restorative care? As graduate students, many of us are involved in care and healing, and we can think about these terms in many different ways. Present your ideas, research or opinions at the first FIRE Talk of 2013!
