Seminar Series: Copyrighting Your Thesis & Dissertation, February

Category : News/Events

Will your thesis or dissertation raise copyright issues?  Learn about navigating copyright and author rights in a digital environment!

The workshops will answer questions like …

  • Everyone quotes the work of other scholars in their dissertation. As long as the quotes are acknowledged, does this ever raise copyright issues?
  • I found a photo online on a website. Can I include it in my dissertation since everything’s free on the internet?
  • Should I pay to register copyright for my dissertation?
  • I have this great film clip from the 1940s with images and music that I’d like to include with my dissertation. Are there different copyright rules for audio-visual formats?
  • Chapter 1 of my dissertation has been published in a journal. Is this a problem?

Equity, Autonomy and Substance Use Disorder Webinar, 2/5

Category : News/Events

Click here to register for the online webinar!

Join us on Wednesday, February 5th from 12:00-1:15PM EST for the webinar, “Equity, Autonomy and Substance Use Disorder (SUD): Lifecourse Considerations for Pregnant and Parenting People” hosted by the Centers of Excellence in Maternal and Child Health, Boston University School of Public Health and Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.

Pregnant and parenting people who grapple with substance use disorder often face a steep drop off in care after delivery. The webinar is a call to action to employ a life course approach in the care and treatment of SUD. Employing principles of racial and health equity, social welfare justice, and the life course perspective, the webinar will address: (1) what we do and do not know about long-term treatment of SUD for pregnant and parenting people; (2) stigma and structural barriers to care; (3) exemplary treatment and management models for other conditions (such as postpartum depression and chronic illness) that can inform life-course care for SUD; and (4) promising policies and programs to guide the work of clinicians, addiction specialists, and maternal and child health practitioners.

The webinar will be of special interest to Title V and other maternal and child health practitioners, pediatric professionals, addiction treatment and prevention specialists, and those interested in racial equity, reproductive justice, and social and family welfare.
