Fulbright Lunch & Learn April 8 - 'Negotiating Cultural Boundaries'

March 14th, 2016

The Fulbright Lunch & Learn series continues with "Negotiating Cultural Boundaries: Teaching Clinical Medicine in Jordan." Featuring guest speaker Dr. George Bergus, professor in the department of Family Medicine at the UI, this event will take place on April 8 from 12:30-1:20 p.m. in 1117 UCC.

As a 2012 Fulbright scholar, Bergus taught family medicine at the Jordan University of Science and Technology and provided care to patients at a health center in Irbid, Jordan. During this time, he also traveled to Palestine and visited the Ramallah Friends School. His work and travels resulted in numerous opportunities to reflect on interpersonal and international boundaries.

This event is free and open to the public - bring a brown bag lunch and a friend and come prepared to learn!

This series is co-sponsored by the Iowa Chapter of the Fulbright Association and UI International Programs.
