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
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.
