Thank you for your interest in Gardner-Webb University's Fall Forum. We are excited about this semester's program and hope you find room in your schedule to attend the events we have planned.
The centerpiece of our Forum is the Tuesday evening panel discussion featuring the renowned scholar Dr. Paul D. Simmons of the University of Louisville School of Medicine, an ethicist specializing in medical ethics. Dr. Simmons will deliver the Keynote Address at 7:00 PM on Tuesday evening, 18 November 2003. Two members of the Gardner-Webb faculty will respond to Dr. Simmons' address--Dr. Kent Blevins (ethics) and Dr. Doug Dickens (pastoral counseling). These speakers will be followed by a short question and answer session. The evening will conclude with a reception in the O. Max Gardner Recital Hall.
On Wednesday evening, Gardner-Webb University Theater will present the world premiere of a new play entitled DOGFALL, written by Scot Lahaie. This play attempts to capture the elements of the debate raging around doctor-assisted suicide, which is at the heart of our Forum on the Right to Die. The play will be performed daily through Sunday in the Millennium Playhouse for five performances.
