Each year Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania holds the Annual Health Sciences Symposium, and each year it never disappoints. This years theme was, “Don’t Text and Drive” Analog Minds In A Digital World. The symposium hosted many programs and had many speakers. The keynote address, “Digital Technology and Multi-tasking: Effects on Brain Function,” was given by Dr. David Strayer, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology from the University of Utah. The symposium also hosted other programs such as, The prevalence of Cyber Bullying and Sexting in K-12 Schools, Texting is the New Classroom Doodling, and The Effects of Texting on Communication Skills.
There were many exhibits and demonstrations at the symposium, to name a few, held by representatives from BU’s Audiology Department, BU’s Student Nurses Association, Geisinger Medical Center, Catawissa Chiropractic Center, and even Bloom Naturally.
