Event Planners Have Fun Promoting Dr. Richard Heinzl’s Upcoming College Talk
Dr. Heinzl, a humble and engaging speaker, has had more than a handful of life-changing experiences to share with students. His memoir, Cambodia Calling—which inspired a lot of the chalk quotes—has particularly moved the Ursunis students. Drawing from lessons he has learned of ordinary people doing extraordinary things, Dr. Heinzl will speak to them about our increasingly shrinking world and the opportunities for positive social change that exist because of this situation.
Over email, Dr. Heinzl told us he plans to discuss “what happens to people who get caught up in war and poverty." He adds: "I'll try to paint a picture of this whole wide world and bring it back home to make it relevant for the students."
The newly opened center, where he will be presenting, was developed to promote the intrinsic link between the sciences and ethics and social good. Heinzl's first-hand experience with the way that medicine and scientific developments can vastly improve the quality of life of those all over the world makes him an ideal speaker. And you can quote us in chalk!
