I like to think of myself as a visual story-teller. One of the many reasons why I enjoy what I do is because I get to capture events through a lens and tell people about them. Last week a lot happened around the McAnulty College of Liberal Arts. Here is a re-telling of those events.
Author, Maggie Jackson visited Duquesne to speak to the McAnulty College Residential Learning Communities about her book, Distracted: The Erosion of Attention and the Coming Dark Age. Distracted is the common reading for all Learning Community students for the fall semester.
Healthcare has been a hot topic nationally. Last week the Center for Healthcare Ethics presented: “Moral Courage: An Unsung Resource for Optimizing Health Care Practices.” As part of the presentation, the second edition of the book: “Contemporary Health Care Ethics” authored by David F. Kelly, Dr. Gerard Magill, Vernon F. Gallagher, and Dr. Henk ten Have was unveiled.
