KIHA to Capture History

On Monday, January 28, 2019, KIHA will film Dr. H. William Koch sharing his work on the Manhattan Project. KIHA hosted Dr. Koch the evening of December 7, 2018 to a packed event space. He enthralled the audience with his lecture, so we are bringing him back to present again. This time the lecture is open to the public. Students of all disciplines will enjoy hearing this lecture on history, physics, World War II and atomic weapons. This seminar will be held in the fifth floor event space of the Engineering and Computer Science Building. Visit this page to learn more.

The Knoebel Institute for Healthy Aging will present monthly Chalk Talks for faculty and students interested in aging. These talks are specifically about current and future work related to aging and are meant to help foster new collaborations between faculty. Our goal is for the faculty to participate both in giving the talks as well as being an active and helpful audience. Faculty can feel free to invite students who are interested in aging. In February, Dr. Leslie Hasche from the Graduate School of Social Work will present her research.

DATE: Tuesday, February 5, 2018
