Curious Conversations: Jan Palmer

"When you see something curious, start chasing it” (Curious George). In this curious conversation, Dr. Palmer, will lead a discussion around the topic of the additive value of qualitative data.  Some of the curious questions and even more curious responses she has chased related to Alzheimer’s caregiving, Hurricane Katrina, the Joplin Tornado, and older adults’ experiences early in the COVID-19 pandemic will be presented.  As Curious George says “"Sometimes the best ideas come from the places [or people] you’d least expect." 


The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP) invites all members of the Webster University community to step into the realm of Webster's 'Curious Conversations' series – a monthly rendezvous where the dynamism of current events, the prowess of faculty expertise, and the depths of scholarly inquiry converge for a delightful mix! Our mission? To craft an environment where minds meld and connections flourish, all in an inviting and relaxed atmosphere. Each session springs to life by fusing a current event, whether weighty or whimsical, with the scholarly mastery of a Webster University faculty member. Expect engaging discussions with fellow participants, and be sure to make time for the pre- and post-event conversation and connection. Brought to you by ORSP and open to all members of our community, this series invites you to 'BYO' snacks and refreshments, encouraging the sharing of treats and ideas alike. Join us and experience the fusion of fun and knowledge – because at 'Curious Conversations,' learning is a social affair.
