Physical and Psychological Stressors and Coronary Artery Disease
WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 11, 1989 12:00 p.m.

James Blascovich is director of the Center for the Study of Behavioral and Social Aspects Of Health at the State University of New York at Buffalo. Somewhat unusual for academia, Dr. Blascovich was for a time successful businessman. His firm, Advanced Automation Concepts, pioneered the application of psychological knowledge in the design and implementation of computer software systems.

Professor Blascovich's current research concerns the interaction of mind and body in the determination of physiological states. His lecture, "Physical and Psychological Stressors and Coronary Artery Disease," offers new insights into the predictive causes of heart disease.

Please return the enclosed meal reservation. Dr. Blascovich's discussion begins at 12:20 and concludes by 1:15.
