UC Speaker Series

Each year, the UC Speaker Series brings distinguished speakers and thought-provoking events to Charleston, West Virginia.  Speakers have included astronaut Sally Ride, crusader Erin Brokovich, comedian Dave Barry, White House chef Walter Scheib, Time Magazine editor Nancy Gibbs, and many others.  The Forum on the Future of Energy in 2010 pitted environmentalist Bobby Kennedy against coal magnate Don Blankenship in a debate watched around the world. 

Upcoming Event

How Healthy is Healthcare?

Healthcare has certainly been the topic of many news reports lately, and this year’s Dow Speaker Series will provide some interesting perspectives on the dialogue. The Series returns October 28, with the CEOs of CAMC and Thomas Health System discussing “How Healthy is Healthcare?”, a conversation about the state of healthcare in the US – the changes, the successes, where the future of medicine may take us, and more.

Patient Safety

Our November 11th Speaker Series will feature a national speaker on Patient Safety. More details coming soon.

For more information call 304-357-4719.

Event is at 6:30 p.m. in the Geary Auditorium, free and open to the public.

Since 2001, the Dow Chemical Foundation has been the major sponsor for UC Speaker Series events.
