As America experiences a major demographic shift because of increasing longevity, declining fertility and aging of the baby boomers, health care is changing fundamentally.
On November 7th, Professor Alan M. Jette will deliver the 14th annual Dudley Allen Sargent Distinguished Lecture, which honors Sargent College founder Dudley Allen Sargent, M.D. whose mission was to provide students with comprehensive health care training. In his lecture, “Face Into the Storm,” Dr. Jette will focus on the fundamental changes occurring within healthcare, including challenges of limited access to services and unsustainable cost escalation.
Jette, an expert on health policy and disability research, serves as director of the Health & Disability Research Institute and professor of Health Policy & Management at Boston University School of Public Health. His work focuses on the development of measurement instruments to evaluate the quality of health care.
The event will begin at 4pm at Sargent College, 635 Commonwealth Avenue, Room 101. The event is free and open to the public. All attendees are invited to attend a reception following the lecture in the Setterberg Lounge.

On Tuesday, November 8th, Dr. Robert Post visited Sargent College to present the “USDA’s New MyPlate Initiative: Putting the Dietary Guidelines into Action” for the 13th Annual Dudley Allen Sargent Lecture. As Deputy Director of the USDA’s Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion (CNPP), Post oversees the MyPlate Initiative‘s design, website development and communications campaign.
Dr. Post described MyPlate’s collaboration with First Lady Michelle Obama: “It really brings home the issue of improving our healthy choices, but because of the affiliation with Let’s Move!, it also shows that we’re not only talking about healthy choices. We’re really also talking about balancing those food choices with physical activity.”
