In Extreme Medicine, Dr. Fong introduces the catalysts of modern day medicine. With carefully minted words on 257 pages, Fong presents various medical cases to a technical and non-technical audience in a very engaging manner. An amazing read! Fong is a great storyteller.
Students in the Spring 2016 Intercultural Communication class at the University of Dubuque raised $706.50 for Empower Nepali Girls (http://www.empowernepaligirls.org). They exceeded their goal of $340 to help two Nepali girls attend school for a year. Many thanks to the University of Dubuque Community and the patrons of The Smokestack on 62 E 7th St, Dubuque, Iowa 52001. A special thank you to Keri Schwanekamp for her remarkable leadership, and a big thank you to the owners of The Smokestack (Scott Cornwell & Susan Price) & Susan's Father for their generous donation and hospitality during the fundraiser.
