Dr. Ogaryan’s Lecture in Armenia

In September, Valentina Ogaryan, PhD, staff psychologist, had the honor of giving a guest lecture to the professionals and students at Yerevan State University in Armenia on the topic of Psycho-Oncology within Armenian communities. Dr. Ogaryan was able to share her experiences practicing psycho-oncology at Simms/Mann Center. Since the practice of psycho-oncology in Armenia is in its early stages, the lecture included a lively discussion on the complex topic.

Founded in 1919, Yerevan State University is the oldest and largest continuously operating public university in Armenia. Yerevan State University has an enrollment range of 15,000-20,000 students and offers courses and programs leading to officially recognized higher education degrees such as bachelor degrees, master degrees, and doctorate degrees in several areas of study.

We are so proud of Dr. Ogaryan for continuing to share the work that she does at the Center and we thank Yerevan State University for inviting Dr. Ogaryan to lecture on such an important topic.
