Faculty members are encouraged to attend the final President's Colloquia event of the fall, which will take place 4-6 p.m. Nov. 14 at Westwood.

Hosted by President Mitch Daniels, the colloquia provide opportunities to hear faculty experts discuss their research in presentations specifically for non-experts and include a wine and hors d'oeuvre reception. Registration is required, and faculty will receive via email a link to register online.

The event will feature James Anderson, professor in the Department of Sociology and Brian Lamb School of Communication. Anderson's research examines ways to detect and reduce medical errors, which are estimated to account for as many as 251,000 deaths annually in the U.S., making medical errors the third-leading cause of death. Anderson also will review the results of a series of studies using structural equation modeling and computer simulation to shed light on ways that medical errors can be predicted and prevented.
