Dr. Mindy Haar in Self on Getting Back on Track After Overeating

What does Haar do on those occasions? “I try to really enjoy the indulgence, make sure I’m sitting down and eating slowly, preferably with a cup of great coffee, really focus on what I’m eating, and then get back to my usual fruit, vegetables, legumes, and nuts.”

Washington Post Publishes President Guiliano Op-Ed

Feb 05, 2016

It's welcome news that the 2016 federal spending bill has increased financing for the National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation, among others. Funding for these agencies and the research they support has been flat for years.

"But revolutionary innovation depends on more than robust financing," writes NYIT President Edward Guiliano, Ph.D., in a Washington Post op-ed. "It also requires doctors, engineers, and researchers to embrace the humanities. Indeed, the world's biggest challenges—whether economic, environmental, technological, or physical—demand critical thinking, empathy, cultural literacy, and creativity. These skills are cultivated through an education that embraces the humanities."

The desire to improve the human experience through science is often inspired by the humanities, adds Guiliano. He cites several examples across higher education, including NYIT's minor in Medical Humanities.
