Office Hours
with Cybelle Kaehler
UCI Faculty and the Fascinating Stories from their Research

Dr. John Billimek

Returning to air after a brief hiatus, “Office Hours” dives into a hot topic- the state of the healthcare system in America. We sit down with Dr. John Billimek, a psychologist and professor at the UCI School of Medicine, to discuss his extensive research on health disparities in the US. From insurance woes, to socioeconomic and racial factors, to bias from doctors, to workplace hazards, health in America is anything but equal. Join us as we discuss the problems with the system, and how it could be changed. Dr. Billimek runs the HELIOS lab at UCI, which researches health disparities, and is a director of the Program in Medical Education for the Latino Community in the School of Medicine.

Bill McKibben discusses his book Falter: Has the human game begun to play itself out? at the Free Library of Philadelphia. McKibben gave one of the earliest cautions about global warming with his 1989 book The End of Nature. His many other bestselling books about the environment include Deep Economy, Eaarth, and Oil and Honey; as well as a novel, Radio Free Vermont, which imagines a band of Vermont patriots who decide to secede from the United States. Recipient of the 2013 Gandhi Peace Award, McKibben is the Schumann Distinguished Scholar at Middlebury College and a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. In Falter, he offers a dire warning about the shrinking space in which civilization can exist.
