Learn about medical apartheid tomorrow @ noon

January 26, 2010 —

The DMU diversity office has arranged for Harriet A. Washington, author of “Medical Apartheid: The Dark History of Medical Experimentation on Black Americans from Colonial Times to the Present” to speak on campus tomorrow (1/27) @ noon. Free and open to all, her talk will be held in the DMU Olsen Medical Education Center, 3200 Grand Avenue in Des Moines.

The event is in celebration and recognition of black history month and Martin Luther King, Jr. Day this month.

Courtney Tompkins has been part of the DMU marketing team since Nov. 2005 and loves promoting a school she believes in so thoroughly. Proud daughter and patient of DMU alumni, Courtney knows, first-hand, that Des Moines University is doing a world of good. A fan of all outdoor festivals, fruity drinks and nearly all edibles, she has a hard time narrowing down her list of favorite places to go and things to do but lists the Iowa State Fair as an all-time fave. She loves her 8-minute commute to DMU from Urbandale, a suburb of Des Moines. She and husband Tyler are owned by three large dogs, Tonka, Tucker and Tank.
