A Subsidiary of Provocate.org

Welcome to IndyBuzz

IndyBuzz provides information about Central Indiana's most stimulating and thought provoking events -- discussions and conferences, art exhibitions, films, music performances. It tells you what's happening … explains why you should be part of what’s happening. More than an events calendar, though, IndyBuzz tries to make events more meaningful for participants by suggesting an article or two to read before the event, recommending books or websites that will be sources of further information after the event, and pointing out related events that are worth attending.

Visit IndyBuzz's sister site, http://www.provocate.org/, which provides a context for the clusters of the events discussed in IndyBuzz.

"Language in Healthcare: Future Views"

All are welcome and invited to join our engaging conversation on current issues of language and communication in healthcare as we celebrate the 10th Anniversary of ICIC and our work in translational research. Our panelists will lead the open discussion with their own thoughts on priorities and issues that still need to be addressed and solved based on their research and practice. Our intent is to establish new directions and connections in this interdisciplinary field that strives to better the healthcare system for everyone.
