ODK Earth Day Event: April 16th, 2011

Who? You and all of your friends

What? American Chemical Society is sponsoring a table at the ODK earth day event.

Where? The park in the center of Canton, NY

When? Saturday, April 16th 10am-3pm

ACS will have a table at this event. We plan on setting up chemistry demonstrations for the Canton community. The theme is earth week, so this is a great opportunity for to advocate green chemistry!

We are kicking off the new semester strong with a continuation of our Skype Lecture series! Towards the later part of the fall semester we had a Skype Informational Interview with Dr. Harvey Reich. As a physician, the Director of the Intensive Care Unit at Rutland Regional Medical Center, and a Clinical Associate Professor for the College of Medicine at the University of Vermont, Dr. Reich was able to to extend to our club not only suggestions on medicine but also was able to provide guidance on the medical school process.

Given that most of our members in the American Chemical Society are largely interested in medicine, we are continuing the trend by hosting Dr. Michael T. Newhouse. Below you will find a more detailed biographical sketch, but in short, Dr. Newhouse is a Pulmonologist, a Clinical Professor of Medicine at McMaster University in Canada, a Founding Director of the Firestone Institute for Respiratory Health, inventor of the AeroChamber inhaler, President Emeritus of the International Society for Aerosols in Medicine, and is currently the Chief Medical Officer of InspiRx Pharmaceuticals. He is happy to discuss the world of Pulmonology and Respiratory Medicine.

This Skype interview with Dr. Newhouse will take place in room 309 in the Johnson Hall of Science at 5:15pm on Tuesday, February 15th.
