'Finding God at Iowa' forum to feature UI physician-ethicist
IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Lauris Kaldjian, physician-ethicist at the University
of Iowa's College of Medicine, will be the first speaker for Finding God at
Iowa forum, which begins its fall semester at noon, Friday, Sept. 7 in the
Northwestern Room (Second Floor) of the Iowa Memorial Union.
Now in its fifth year, the monthly lunch series is designed for faculty,
staff and students who are curious about how one's faith commitment may contribute
to either theory or practice of one's academic discipline or work. The forums
are free and open to the public.
Kaldjian joined the staff in the College of Medicine's Program in Biomedical
Ethics and Medical Humanities one year ago. In addition to his medical degree,
which was awarded by the University of Michigan in 1989, Kaldjain also holds
a master of divinity degree from Yale Divinity School and is presently a doctoral
candidate in the department of religious studies at Yale University.
The Finding God at Iowa lunch forum is a program of the Geneva Campus Ministry
at the University of Iowa. It is designed to complement the popular Geneva
Lecture Series which brings speakers to the UI campus to speak on a wide variety
of topics from a Judeo-Christian perspective.
