UNMC Brown Bag

UNMC Brown Bag Lectures and Video Library

Lunch-hour Brown Bag Lectures are offered on the third Tuesday of every month, with the exception of summer months (June-August), to all on the UNMC/Nebraska Medicine campus.  Lectures typically take place at the Eppley Science Hall Amphitheater and can be viewed afterward here in the Video Library.  One nursing credit is offered for each lecture attended in person for $10.  Credit is no longer available for online videos. All lectures are free and a light refreshment is offered to participants.  We encourage everyone to bring their lunches.  REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED.  To register, please call the Resource Center at 402-559-6345. 

Olson Center Video Library

To view the Olson Center for Women's Health presentations, you will need to use Real Player. If you don't have this software already, you may download it from Real. Please check back frequently as more lectures will be added on an on-going basis. These lectures are for the community and health care providers.  Beginning in September 2012, you will also need to download the free Quicktime software.  If you are still having difficulty after downloading Quicktime, please go into Quicktime on your computer; click on edit; click on preferences; click on Quicktime preferences; click on advanced and uncheck the "Enable Direct3D video acceleration."  This can cause a problem with older PC's and their video drivers.

Nursing Credit is NOT offered for online videos.
