Dr. Ned Hallowell to speak at 2007-2008 Convocation Series

FEBRUARY 6, 2008

Ned Hallowell, M.D.Dr. Ned Hallowell, M.D. will make two presentations as part of the 2007-2008 Convocation Series "Many Voices Bold Vision." His first presentation, "Worry," will be held Friday, Feb. 15 at 3:30 p.m. "CrazyBusy," the second of Hallowell's presentations, will be held Saturday, Feb. 16 at Noon. Both events will be held in Hoversten Chapel in the Foss Center.

Edward (Ned) Hallowell, a child and adult psychiatrist and graduate of Harvard College and Tulane Medical School, is the founder of The Hallowell Center in Sudbury, Mass. He was a member of the Harvard Medical School faculty from 1983 until he retired from academics in 2004 to devote his full professional attention to his clinical practice, lectures, and the writing of books. He has authored 14 books on various psychological topics, including attention deficit disorder, the power of the human connection, the childhood roots of happiness in life, methods of forgiving others, dealing with worry, and managing excessive busyness.

Dr. Hallowell's most recent book, "CrazyBusy: Overbooked, Overstretched, and about to Snap," was published in the spring of 2006. In it he explores how the pace of modern life has induced brain overload to the point where our entire society is suffering from culturally induced ADD. "CrazyBusy" then provides a step-by-step approach to unsnarling busy lives and moving to a calmer, more fulfilling life that is focused on our own priorities. In his medical practice, Dr. Hallowell helps adults, as well as children, learn how to lead healthy, happy lives.

The Convocation is free and open to the public. The 2007-2008 Augsburg Convocation Series is the eighth annual series incorporating long-standing endowed and special programs of Augsburg College. For more information about the Augsburg Convocation series, visit:
