Fisher Professors Present "Putting Rochester on the Map: George Goler, M.D., and Health Care for All" for First Friday Lecture Series
Three Fisher faculty members will present "Putting Rochester on the Map: George Goler, M.D., and Health Care for All" on Friday, October 2, as part of the College's First Friday Faculty Lecture Series. The presenting professors are: Dr. Carolyn Vacca, Assistant Professor of History; Dr. Lisa Jadwin, Professor of English; and Dr. Timothy Madigan, Assistant Professor of Philosophy. The event begins at 10 a.m. in Basil 135 on the Fisher campus, and is free and open to the public.
The lecture will focus on Dr. George Goler, a Rochester-based pioneer in public health, who was one of the nation's first physicians and hospital administrators to extend health care to the working poor. A multimedia presentation by Dr. Vacca will showcase photographs from the Rochester Public Library's celebrated Goler collection. Drs. Madigan and Jadwin will join Dr. Vacca to discuss the new Health Humanities program at Fisher, and plans for the digitization of the Goler collection.
The First Friday Faculty Lecture Series takes place on the first Fridays of October through December during the fall semester and February through April in the spring semester. The lectures are designed for individuals who are interested in hearing learned perspectives on a variety of current topics from members of the St. John Fisher College faculty.
