Monday, August 8, 12 noon to 1:00 p.m.
Howe Conference Room Briscoe Library
In this noon hour presentation, Dr. Richard F. Ludueña, Ph.D., distinguished Teaching Professor in the Department of Biochemistry, will explore multiple aspects of Hispanic identity in the U.S. “If we start drawing medical conclusions,” he says, “we need to be clear what we are talking about.”
The talk will move in the direction of a working genetic definition that takes account of the variety of Hispanic populations in the U.S., including Peninsular, Native American, African, and others.
Dr. Ludueña’s lecture is a sponsored activity of the Friends of the P.I. Nixon Medical Historical Library and is open to the public.
