Our Club needs some alumni to lend a hand. Volunteers may be asked to cover a range of things, depending on what stage of work is going on in a particular house. It could be demolition, putting up dry wall, spackling/sanding/painting or cleaning up, etc. Volunteers do not need to possess any specific skills. Instruction/direction will be provided by an on-site supervisor. Anyone age 14 and up is welcome to volunteer. Ages 14/15 require a parent/guardian to be onsite with the child. Ages 16/17 don’t require a parent onsite, but require parental consent. Let’s give back to our community with this one day’s initiative. Cost: Free. Contact/RSVP: Glenn Cashion ’63 to volunteer.

6:00 pm – 8:00 pm, The Residences at the Ritz-Carlton, Resident Lounge, 1414 South Penn Square
Brown's new Primary Care-Population Medicine Program will change the way future physicians are trained.

So what is population medicine? Simply put, it is the consideration of the impact of medical care beyond the treatment of individual patients and the importance of the broader determinants of health. Population medicine acknowledges the vital role of multidisciplinary partnerships that include public health, education, business, and social services, and takes into account socioeconomic factors and the physical environment. Join us to hear Dr. Allan Tunkel, associate dean for medical education, talk about population medicine, primary care, and Brown's proactive approach to preparing its graduates for future trends in health care. Refreshments will be served. Cost: $10 Brown alumni, parents, and friends; $5 for young alumni. Contact: Carlen Adler (401-863-6030). RSVP: Online by 4/15.

Featuring Leora Tanenbaum ’91

New York City, NY | Pembroke Center Associates
6:30 pm, Location and directions provided upon RSVP
Young women today are encouraged to express themselves sexually. Yet when they do, they are derided as "sluts," caught in a double bind of mixed sexual messages. How can they be sexy without being slutty? And how did they get in this bind to begin with? Leora Tanenbaum ’91, author of the groundbreaking work Slut!, and the writer who coined the term slut-bashing—talks about her new book, I Am Not A Slut, and offers fresh insights into the digital and face-to-face worlds contemporary young women inhabit. She shares her new research on slut-shaming, involving the experiences of a wide range of teenage girls and young women from a variety of backgrounds, as well as parents, educators, and academics. Tanenbaum analyzes the coping mechanisms young women currently use and suggests a new direction to eradicate slut-shaming for good. Space is limited and preregistration is required. Cost: Free. Contact/RSVP: Martha Hamblett (401-863-3433). Thank you to Amy Finn Binder ’77, P’02, P’09 and Ava Seave ’77 for graciously hosting this event!
