Jeanie Harris, APRN, MSN, PNP-C, will present the March 10 HealthPulse Lecture. The lecture is open to the public and will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. March 10, on the Newman University Campus, 3100 McCormick, in the Dugan-Gorges Conference Center.

Harris is a new member of the nursing faculty at Newman University teaching pediatric nursing. Harris brings years of experience as a professional nurse, nurse practitioner, and nurse educator. Harris obtained her APRN, C-PNP, MSN, RN, and BSN at Wichita State University.

Her experiences working with children with ADHD, including her son and grandchildren, led her to an interest in sharing information with others regarding characteristics of this disorder and its effective management.

“I started being interested in ADHD in the ’80s because my son had ADHD, and I found it alarming how badly he was treated… by teachers, the school system, other parents, for something that, in my mind… was propelling him, that he didn’t have much control over,” Harris said, explaining her personal connection to ADHD.

This event includes lunch, and a $5 registration is required. To register and view a complete list of dates, visit A shuttle van will operate between parking lots and the Conference Center for those who require assistance.
