Cancer Facts: A new textbook by biology professors Craig Almeida and Sheila Barry explores the basic science of cancer and its clinical aspects. Given their expertise on the subject and the continued prevalence of cancer in our society, we asked them for five facts that people should know about the disease. To benefit from their insights, visit here.
Overdose Prevention: At 26, criminology major Hillary Dubois '06 is at the forefront of Brockton's outreach to families affected by opiate addiction. The Coordinator of the City's Overdose Prevention Committee, she recently rallied community leaders for a major forum to educate the public about the signs of drug use and how to find help. Dubois told The Enterprise she first became interested in overdose prevention while taking a class at Stonehill. To read that story, visit here.
Go West: The College has established a Los Angeles Internship Program, which will help students learn more about the production and business sides of the entertainment industry. With his radio and television contacts, Outstanding Alumnus Doug McIntyre '79 has been helping with this initiative. With many industry ties of his own, Media and Videographic Services Director Mike Pietrowski is also assisting. Four students are expected to participate in the program later this year.
Bravo Company: Since 1976, ROTC has been part of campus and this year nine Stonehill students are members of Bravo Company, based at the College, but affiliated with Boston University's 140-cadet Charles River Battalion. To see how the cadets prepare for leadership in the military, we tracked them during field exercises and in class. To view the photos, visit our Bravo Company Snapshot.
Spring Break Snapshot: Many students took advantage of Spring Break to travel for a Learning Community or to participate in a service opportunity. The destinations were numerous - China, Peru, Honduras, Nicaragua, Dominican Republic, Ireland, Romania, New Orleans, Tennessee, Florida, New York, and California. To see images from these trips, visit our Spring Break Snapshot.
Exploring Homelessness: A presentation on Wednesday at 4 p.m. in the Martin Institute will hear from those who have experienced or are experiencing homelessness. For more, visit here.
