About the Speaker: David Victorson, Ph.D., Assoc. Prof. Medical School Sciences, Feinberg School of Medicine, Director of the Consciousness in Health Research Lab

Dr. David Victorson is Associate Professor of Medical School Sciences at the Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern, and Director of the Consciousness in Health Research Lab.  Victorson, as a licensed health psychologist, researches ways to reduce symptoms of suffering within the context of illness and disease, but also finds ways to promote and accelerate healthy lives and wellness, quality of life, meaning and purpose, and overall human flourishing.  He is on the team-science faculty track at Northwestern, and fully believes in the importance of trans-disciplinary collaboration with academic and community partners, often noting that while research is "me-search," important discoveries and contributions don't occur until research is "we-search."  He received his Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from the University of Miami.
