Kimberly Papillon, a noted researcher into decision-making at the molecular level, will speak to SCC Faculty and staff during the August 18 morning Flex workshop in the Performing Arts Center.

Her book, The Better Mind explores emerging research in neuroscience and reveals how unconscious processes may affect decision-making. Brain imaging and decision-making studies can explain how we determine intelligence, veracity, threat, and competence. The goal – to identify ways to ensure sound decision making and fairness guided by science.

Papillon is a nationally recognized expert on medical, legal and judicial decision-making. She has served as regular faculty at the National Judicial College since 2005. She has delivered over 300 lectures nationally and internationally on the implications of neuroscience, psychology and implicit association in the analysis of decision-making in the fields of medicine, business, education and the justice system. She has lectured to medical students and faculty, as well as physicians nationwide and in Australia on the neuroscience of decision-making in differential diagnosis and treatment.

She has been appointed to the Georgetown University National Center for Cultural Competence’s “think tank” for physician education.

The Flex workshop will be held from 8:30 a.m. to noon in PAC 106.

President Obama Declares National HSI Week

Sacramento City College joins with many institutions of higher education across the nation this week in celebration of National Hispanic Serving Institution Week.

President Barack Obama made the declaration that the week of Sept. 19 through 23 will serve as a reminder that many college and universities enroll at least 25% of their students from Hispanic/Latino populations.

That includes Sac City, where our student body is about 30% Hispanic/Latino.

In addition, SCC is in the first of a 5-year, $2.65 million HSI Grant from the federal government called “SAGE” or Students in a Global Economy. And the college is gearing up to apply for more grant money specifically for Hispanic/Latino STEM majors.
