Marrs to discuss Welty, Art of Diagnosis
Dr. Suzanne Marrs, professor and Eudora Welty Scholar-in-Residence at Millsaps College, will present "Eudora Welty and the Art of Diagnosis" at noon on Monday, March 18, in classroom R354 (upper amphitheatre).
Marrs will discuss Welty's skillful observation in "The Demonstrators," "A Worn Path" and "Where is the Voice Coming From?"
The program, sponsored by the Center for Bioethics and Medical Humanities, Millsaps College and the Mississippi Humanities Council, will explore what a story has to offer to the understanding of patients, their illnesses, the contexts of illness and the potential for intervention and advocacy. The stories are available in the Collected Stories of Eudora Welty.
Lunch will be available on a first-come basis. For more information, call Pam Wardlaw at 4-1198.
