World Scouting today is not what you may think. Today’s Scouting is 110 years old, in 169 countries world-wide, with just over 50 million members of both genders. And Scouting is no longer a northern hemisphere, developed country movement. Over 80% of our members are in the developing countries worldwide. The young people in these areas face a constant struggle to avoid the perils of drug abuse and the influence of street gangs.
Some of these youths run the risk of becoming tomorrow’s terrorists. Today, Scouting is in the slums …opening the doors to schools; offering basic medical and health support; informal career advice; thus providing an alternative to the ever-present influence of drugs and crime. It is Scouting in the more affluent countries which can learn from these realities by supporting their partners in the developing world.
Conventional, organic and natural winemaking techniques will be discussed… outlining the benefits and perils for all 3 of them. The three wines that represent each of these winemaking processes will be utilized in an effort to highlight the differences between them. Hopefully, this will encourage people to be more aware of vineyard practices and their use of additives in winemaking.
We are all aware of the cognitive and motor changes that are part of the normal aging process, but when should we worry that perceived changes are harbingers of a more serious and perhaps precipitous decline. This presentation will focus on the cognitive changes associated with normal and abnormal aging.
Professor Shtull will provide insight into the various forms of murder including mass shootings, intimate partner homicides and serial killings. The general characteristics, patterns and trends of these crimes will be discussed.
Me Goodwin will present the details from one of her cases along with the pertinent jurisprudence. Then the audience will be divided into groups (jury) whose task it will be to determine whether or not the protagonist is guilty. Once deliberations are completed, the foremen of each group will deliver their verdicts along with the reasons underlying their decisions.
Finally, Me Goodwin will announce the actual verdict in the case and explain the law as it applies to the matter at hand.
The McGill University Department of Family Medicine and the St. James Literary Society are pleased to present the Dr. Hirsh Rosenfeld Annual Distinguished Lecture in Family Medicine.
Sr. Monique Bourget, the Medical Director of Santa Marcelina Hospital in Brazil, will explore her journey from her medical training at McGill University to her work in San Paulo, where she developed community-based family health programs. She will share her experiences in family medicine, how she fit that in with her calling and the work she is currently doing. This public lecture will allow Sr. Monique to convey her dedication and passion providing inspiration and hope for patients and families here in Montreal.
Refreshments will be served.
Of interest to the general public as well as to health-care professionals, this Distinguished Lecture Series in Family Medicine was inaugurated in 1990 and was made possible by an endowment by the late Dr. Hirsh Rosenfeld, a Montreal family physician. He was a staunch supporter of a number of educational activities and this lecture series is another example of his generosity.
