The Positive Health Lecture Series is organized by Martin Seligman, University of Pennsylvania professor and founder of the positive-psychology movement, and Penn's Positive Psychology Center and is funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The project aims to improve health and quality of life by focusing on health strengths and low-cost interventions.
