5th Annual Robert G. Gootee Lecture featuring author Kevin Carroll, Nov. 15

On Friday, November 15, OHSU and the OHSU Foundation will be co-hosting the 5th Annual Robert G. Gootee/Moda Health Endowed Lecture on Leadership and Professionalism. This event is very exciting because Kevin Carroll—well-known author, speaker and agent for social change—will be helping us understand how to enliven and enrich our work lives, enhance innovation, and improve team dynamics and interpersonal communication.

Kevin has dedicated his life to advancing sports and play as a vehicle for social change and success. He promotes the spirit of play, believing that it is necessary to maximize creativity and human potential. He speaks to audiences holding a playground ball and talks about how we’ve become focused on our thumbs and smart phones when we should be throwing the ball high and engaging in our world more broadly. Kevin has worked with numerous companies including ESPN, Nike, Starbucks, The National Basketball Association, The Walt Disney Company, Mattel, Procter & Gamble, The Discovery Channel, and Capital One. So don’t miss out, it’s going to be fun!
