It has been estimated that over 1 billion people worldwide live without access to health care. Organizations such as Partners In Health work relentlessly to improve access to primary and secondary health care to those who need it most. Despite modern medical advancements and the ability to treat people in remote parts of the world, millions of people are still left without hospitals, without doctors, and without treatment. Join the movement today to reverse these trends and enter the discussion by attending the conference Whatever It Takes.

The Institute for the Public Life of Arts and Ideas and the Early Modern Conversions Project welcomes
Felipe Fernández-Armesto on Change
Change puzzles pre-Socratics. We have stopped wondering at the mutability of the cosmos, but bicker over cultural change – its volatitly and apparent acceleration. Is evolution or something like it responsible? Or does culture change according to a dynamic of its own? The lecturer promises an original resolution or at least an original approach.
Dr. Bruce M. Shore, Emeritus Professor, in the Department of Educational and Counselling Psychology recently published a new book titled "The graduate advisor handbook: A student-centered approach".
