Friday, Nov. 30th: An Unreasonable Man (Documentary Screening)
Whoever said, "One person can make a difference" must have been talking 
about Ralph Nader. For over forty years Nader has taken on big business 
and corporate America all in the name of the people.  But lately this 
consumer advocate's halo has been a bit tarnished. Is he a hero? A 
villain? A principled man? Or an egomaniac? You decide.

Friday, Dec. 14th: Mapping Stem Cell Research: Terra Incognita 
(Documentary Screening)
Some consider stem cell research the Holy Grail of regenerative 
medicine. Others view the idea as morally wrong. But what would you do 
if your child became paralyzed from the waist down and you had access to 
the research that might allow them to walk again one day? These are 
questions our society continues to grapple with. Follow a respected 
neurologist into the unknown territory of stem cell research.
