Peter Guarnaccia, Professor of Human Ecology at Rutgers University, will give a lecture on "The Balancing Act of Speaking Multiple Languages among Immigrant Students at a Public University."

Peter Guarnaccia, Professor I, has contributed to research, conceptual development and applied applications to many of the important areas in culture and mental health research: cultural analyses of psychiatric epidemiology; the integration of cultural syndromes into psychiatric epidemiology and clinical research; family caregiving for a relative with serious mental illness; cultural competence in mental health services research; and processes of culture change among immigrants. To carry out this research program, he employs a creative tension between in-depth, ethnographic studies of individuals in a family context and broader community and national studies employing epidemiological approaches.

Lunch will be served at this event.
