The MA Faculty introduces the Montgomery Lecture Series with a Faculty “Flash(y)” lecture every fall, and this is a variation on that theme.  For this Montgomery Lecture six of our MA students are going to explore a topic they (literally) drew out of a hat in a pithy 5 minutes or less! Come cheer them on as they tackle this challenge, and enjoy a sampling of the diversity of issues engaged by the medical humanities and bioethics.
