Film Synopsis:

Based on an incredible true story of one man’s fight for survival and freedom. In the pre-Civil War United States, Solomon Northup (Chiwetel Ejiofor), a free black man from upstate New York, is abducted and sold into slavery. Facing cruelty (personified by a malevolent slave owner, portrayed by Michael Fassbender), as well as unexpected kindnesses, Solomon struggles not only to stay alive, but to retain his dignity. In the twelfth year of his unforgettable odyssey, Solomon’s chance meeting with a Canadian abolitionist (Brad Pitt) will forever alter his life.

Global Medicine (M.S.) Info Session TODAY

The Keck School of Medicine of USC is hosting two information sessions next week about the Master of Science in Global Medicine program.  If you have any pre-health students interested in medicine, pharmacy, dentistry, please share the attached flyer with them.

Students can pursue the MS in Global Medicine through USC’s progressive degree program.  Most students can complete the program within one calendar year, or sooner if they are almost done with their bachelor’s degree requirements.  It is a good option for students who are taking a "gap year" before they begin medical/pharmacy/dental school.

MS in Global Medicine Information Session

Tuesday, April 1, 12:30-1:50pm @ THH 201

Thank you for your help and cooperation.
