Gonzaga Lecture to Address Social Relationships on Health


On Feb. 28 Sarah Arpin, Gonzaga University assistant professor of psychology, will discuss “Better Relationships for Better Health” in a public lecture.

In addition to sharing details of the study, Arpin will discuss insights from the research relating to loneliness, intimacy and overall health in relationships.

The lecture will be at at 10:30 a.m.Tuesday, Feb. 28 in the McCarthey Athletic Center’s Herak Club Room on the Gonzaga campus.  The meeting starts with social time at 10 a.m.Parking is free in the lot immediately south of McCarthey Athletic Center (801 N. Cincinnati St.).
