Denison Offers Program on 'Medicine as a Vocation'
Posted: March 26, 2003
Denison University will host two speakers on Friday (April 4) at 4 p.m. in the University Room of Slayter to discuss medical trends and the concept of medicine as a "calling." Everyone is welcome to attend this event.
Dr. Margaret Terpenning, Denison class of 1974, is an associate professor of medicine in geriatrics at the University of Michigan. She will speak on "Grateful to be Walking - Thoughts on Geriatrics." Additionally, author Michael Ruhlman will be reading from his book "Walking on Water: Inside an Elite Pediatric Surgical Unit." The book is a dramatic narrative of the life of a surgical team specializing in the repair of babies' and children's malformed hearts and a glimpse into the mind of the surgeon and the craft of one of the most difficult surgical specialties in medicine.
This program is made possible by the support of the Lilly Endowment, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, the University of Michigan Medical School and Veterans Administration Hospital. For more information, contact Professor Thomas Evans, Denison department of chemistry and biochemistry.
