Faculty Lecture: “Western Students Meet Eastern Medicine”


(September 16, 2011) The 2011-2012 Armstrong Atlantic State University Robert I. Strozier Faculty Lecture Series continues at noon on Wednesday, September 28 in the Student Union’s Ogeechee Theatre on the Armstrong campus, 11935 Abercorn Street. The lecture is free and open to the public.

Helen Taggart, professor and head of nursing, Sara Plaspohl, assistant professor of health sciences, and Marilyn O’Mallon, assistant professor of nursing, will present “Western Students Meet Eastern Medicine.”

A core value of any institution of higher education, including Armstrong, is to cultivate diversity, multiethnic participation and international opportunities to promote the understanding of cultural differences. Often, there is no better way to introduce students (and faculty) to other cultures than through study abroad. This lecture describes the College of Health Professions’ most recent study abroad program in China and reflects on the changes in student perceptions of traditional Chinese medicine as the result of a cultural immersion experience.
