Health Care Forum at Bates

Bates College student organizations Amandla!, New World Coalition and the Haward Center for Community Partnerships recently sponsored a Health Care Forum held in Chase Hall Lounge. The forum was moderated by Marshall E. Hatch ’10

The Health Care forum fielded questions from local experts in public health.  Physician Dr. Alice Haines, Maine insurance industry lobbyist Dan Bernier, and Ali Zander, a Bates alumna and representative for the Maine People’s Alliance were members of the panel.

The forum addressed questions concerning the recent congressional health care reform bill and also clarified any confusion over the bill. It was an excellent discussion!

Bates Multifaith Dinner

I attended Bates annual Multi-Faith dinner sponsored by the Office of the Chaplain. The Multifaith dinner celebrates diversity in faith at Bates. Hindu, Buddhist, Christian, Catholic, Christian Science, Jewish, Muslim and other faiths shared their stories about how faith has impacted their lives. The food was delicious and I was treated to a Indian dance performance. I ate well, enjoyed the entertainment and learned a lot.

Here are a few photos from the event.
