How does our journey through life, our hardships, our joys, our triumphs and our struggles affect our bodies? If those effects and the stories they tell to others are invisible, how do we make plain to see the way our challenges and traumas shape us and our communities? Join Colombian surgeon and artist Dr. Libia Posada for lunch, to discuss these questions and more.
Dr. Posada will visit Duke and Durham as part of a three-week Katz Family Fellowship to lead workshops and presentations with students, faculty and community members that deal with migration and trauma, and how she connects art and medicine. Posada will participate in the Franklin Humanities Institute’s Health Humanities Conference, “Breath, Body, Voice.” She will co-lead a workshop on her unique medical/artistic practice that links research, action, and creation with communities in Colombia and Durham. Her art exhibit and reception will be held 6 to 7:30 p.m. Sept. 16 at the Fredric Jameson Gallery at 115 Friedl Building on Duke’s East Campus.
Do Lunch is a series of informal lunch discussions, exclusively for currently enrolled Duke undergraduate students, featuring ethical leaders outside of Duke and their decision-making processes.
Catered lunch available to students who RSVP; space is limited. Sign-up here.
