'Transplant Surgery and Identity': A Discussion Among Pioneers with Unusual Combinations of Interests, Skills and Talents
Date:5/18/2009

MEADVILLE, Pa., May 18 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Using recent advances in transplant surgeries as a focal point, distinguished professionals involved in this quickly changing field will explore how we communicate about identity -- through medicine, books, art, films and journalism -- in a public discussion presented by Allegheny College and held at the Carnegie Science Center at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 21.

"It is difficult to imagine issues more timely, more complex or, frankly, more fundamentally human than those raised by the powerful advances in reconstructive transplant surgeries," said Allegheny College President James H. Mullen Jr. "We are thrilled to be able to conclude Allegheny's Year of Health programming -- a campus-wide effort during the 2008-2009 academic year to explore health across the disciplines -- with such a fascinating conversation."

Beyond bringing the voices of internationally known experts together, "Transplant Surgery and Identity" represents an unusual opportunity for members of the public to participate in this discussion. Aside from Internet-based activities, it may be the first such opportunity.

Moderated by Pittsburgh Post-Gazette health and science reporter David Templeton, the discussion will include five experts.

  • Carla Bluhm, visiting assistant professor of psychology at Allegheny College and author of "Someone Else's Face in the Mirror: Identity and the New Science of Face Transplants," which she co-wrote with Nathan Clendenin, Allegheny class of 2007.
  • John Broughton, associate professor of psychology and education, Teachers College, Columbia University.
  • Allen Furr, department chair and professor of sociology, University of Louisville.
  • Mark Roth, senior staff writer, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.'/>"/>
