Learn about cutting-edge research and clinical practices at Oregon Health & Science University through Marquam Talks, online lectures designed for easy at-home viewing.
Marquam Talks are a virtual version of OHSU’s long-standing Marquam Hill Lectures, which have historically attracted hundreds of attendees to OHSU’s Marquam Hill and South Waterfront campuses in Portland.
Three Marquam Talks are scheduled for Thursdays through November:
- 7 p.m., Sept. 17: "Meeting the Challenge: Innovation Amid Crisis”
- Albert Chi, M.D., M.S.E., will describe how his work on a robotic prosthetic arm led to a 3D-printed ventilator. (View Dr. Chi's lecture here.)
- Noon, Oct. 22: “Sleuthing COVID-19: Lessons Learned and What’s to Come”
- Peter Graven, Ph.D., and William Messer, M.D., Ph.D., will describe how data science and infectious disease expertise are helping OHSU and Oregon find a path forward during the pandemic.
- 7 p.m., Nov. 19: “Redrawing Story Lines: Improving Health for Older African Americans in Changing Neighborhoods”
- Raina Croff, Ph.D., will describe how she uses neighborhood walks to help older Blacks reminisce and prevent memory loss.
All Marquam Talks will be live-streamed.
Each talk will include a 30- to 45-minute presentation by an OHSU expert, followed by a question-and-answer session. Viewers are asked to register and submit questions in advance. More information is on the Marquam Talks website.
Note: This post was updated Sept. 23, 2020, to change the date and time of the "Sleuthing COVID" talk, which is now scheduled for noon Oct. 22.
