About the presenters:
Kate Lorig, RN, DrPH is the Director of the Stanford Patient Education Research Center and an Associate Professor of Medicine in the Stanford School of Medicine. She earned her bachelors degree in nursing at Boston University, and her masters and doctorate of public health (Dr.P.H.) in health education at the University of California, Berkeley. She came to Stanford in 1979 while a graduate student at Cal to develop and research an educational program that emphasized self-help skills for people with arthritis. This program became the Arthritis Self-Help Course, which is now offered to thousands of people with arthritis in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Great Britain, South Africa, Scandanavia and elsewhere, and was the prototype for the Chronic Disease Self-Management Program, the Positive Self-Management Program for HIV/AIDS, the Back Pain Self-Management Program, and others. She has authored several books and many articles about arthritis, chronic disease in general, health education and behavioral science. She travels extensively at the invitation of organizations concerned with patient care and academic research.
Diana Laurent, M.P.H. joined the Stanford Patient Education Research Center in 1986 as a research assistant while she finished her M.P.H. in community health education at San Jose State University. Her "first life," as she calls it, was in rhetoric and communication at the University of California, Davis, many years before.
