Placebo Effects in Medicine and Psychiatry: Obstacle or Opportunity?

In 2009, science faculty and students at Gordon College, Endicott College and Salem State University came together to establish a North Shore Chapter of Sigma Xi, an international scientific research society.

Now the group has planned its first lecture of the 2010–2011 academic year, entitled “Placebo Effects in Medicine and Psychiatry: Obstacle or Opportunity?” John Kelley, assistant professor of mathematics and psychology at Endicott College, will present the lecture, which will take place Thursday, November 4, at 7:30 P.M. in Gordon College’s Ken Olsen Science Center, Room 104, 255 Grapevine Road, Wenham (Exit 17 from Route 128). The event is free and open to the public.

“This is an important topic for students interested in the field of health professions to think about,” said Greg Keller, associate professor of conservation biology and one of six officers for the North Shore Chapter of Sigma Xi.
