In August twenty-six individuals representing UT Health Science Center schools, University Health System, UTSA, the Southwest Foundation for Biomedical Research, and Southwest Research Institute attended noon-hour workshops to train small-group discussion leaders for One Community/One Book 2010.
Discussion opportunities resulting from the workshops will be posted on the library Web site throughout September as we are notified about them by discussion group leaders.
To register a discussion opportunity and/or post it on the project Web site, fill out the online form (doc file).

Rebecca Skloot, the author of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, will be the featured speaker at the Frank Bryant, Jr., MD Memorial Lecture in Medical Ethics. The lecture, sponsored by the Center for Medical Humanities & Ethics, will take place in the Parman Auditorium at 12:30 p.m. on Friday, October 15.
This program was made possible in part with a grant from Humanities Texas, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
