Certificate Program Sees Another Class Graduate
June 13, 2011
On the evening of Tuesday, May 24, the McGovern Center for Humanities and Ethics celebrated those students in the Class of 2011 who graduated from the Medical Humanities and Ethics Certificate Program.
The Certificate Program added nine students to its list of esteemed alumni, with six present to receive their certificates and cords from Dean and President ad interim Giuseppe Colasurdo, M.D., and Program Director, Cheryl Erwin, J.D., Ph.D. Students were presented with white cords to symbolize their achievements in the humanities through the Program. Center faculty, associate faculty and fellows, advisory board members, students, and other friends of the Center were also present to honor the graduating students.
For each graduation ceremony, the Center brings in a guest speaker to offer some thought-provoking words to the students. This year's speaker, Sarah Prinsloo, Ph.D., of M.D. Anderson spoke with the graduates and guests of neuroscience and relationships. Dr. Prinsloo shared with attendees that with every encounter comes a permanent change in the mind, one that will never leave us the same.
