The Haunted Lab
Come howl and shriek with the members of the UND Forensic Science Club! The scary Haunted Lab returns for its 12th year, ready to entertain those ages about 10 and above on the spooky 4th Floor of O'Kelly Hall.
Take the elevator up on October 24th, 25th, 26th, 30th, 31st, and Nov. 1st, from 6 to midnight. Cost for your scares is $5/person at the door. Please wear closed-toe shoes. Proceeds from this event support student travel to the American Academy of Forensic Sciences annual conference.
Theatre B joins forces with Sanford Health's Embrace Cancer Survivorship Program and the UND School of Medicine & Health Sciences (SMHS) for its 2014–2015 season opener, Wit, a Pulitzer Prize winning play by Margaret Edson. The play will have two special performances at 3 and 7 p.m. in Grand Forks on Thursday, Oct. 30, in the Reed Keller Auditorium at the SMHS, 501 N. Columbia Road in Grand Forks.
The play's main character Vivian Bearing, Ph.D., portrayed by Theatre B's Executive Director Carrie Wintersteen, is a renowned professor of English who is diagnosed with advanced ovarian cancer. Confident of her ability to stay in control of events, she brings to her illness the same intensely rational and painstakingly methodical approach that has guided her stellar academic career. However, as her disease and her stint as a prize patient in an experimental chemotherapy program inexorably progress, Vivian comes to reassess her life and her work with a profundity, humor, and wit that are transformative.
The 3 p.m. performance is mandatory for first-year medical students and will be open to other health sciences students, residents, and faculty on a first-come, first-served basis. Following the performance, a panel discussion composed of physicians and Stage IV female cancer patients will be held. The goal of the performance and panel discussion is to foster empathy between medical providers and patients.
At 7 p.m., there will be a free performance for the public and the University community at large also at the Reed Keller Auditorium.
The SMHS Interprofessional Education Program presents these performances as part of a medical humanities series. These performances are supported in part through a Community Innovation Grant from the Bush Foundation and special funding from the Dakota Medical Foundation.
