Prior to the lecture at 4 p.m., there will be a reception in the third-floor River Lounge where attendees can meet with Dr. Loeb.

Dr. Loeb is an expert in end-of-life care and the health of prison inmates, with extensive experience teaching nursing courses at both the undergraduate and graduate levels at various institutions. Since 2004, Dr. Loeb has been a tenured professor at Pennsylvania State University, where she also serves as the director of the college’s Ph.D. program. Her research focuses on the health needs of older prison inmates with chronic health conditions, particularly as they approach the end of their lives, addressing unique challenges such as restrictive environments and dormitory living arrangements that these individuals face within correctional facilities. Dr. Loeb has received funding from the National Institutes of Health for multiple studies aimed at improving geriatric care in prisons.
