Please join us for our kick-off conference for Kind Campus! We'll be unveiling new material in our Kind Campus program, updating you on the work our University of Arizona research team has been doing and have opportunities to become more familiar with our programming.
Our keynote speaker is:
Mary-Frances O’Connor is Assistant Professor of Psychology at the University of Arizona. Her scientific interest focuses on understanding how we each experience emotions and the effect they have on our body. Her work looks in-depth at the grieving process—how it impacts our thoughts and our immune system, and how individual grief responses can vary greatly. Through a variety of research techniques, including neuroimaging and cardiovascular assessments, Dr. O’Connor analyzes how human beings express emotions, especially grief, using methods that range from responding to photos of our loved ones to written reflection to engaging with virtual worlds.
