Talent Lectures

Wednesday, September 21, 1:00 to 3:00 pm, Camelot Theatre, in Talent: Susan Stitham presents, "Oregon and the Presidential Election of 1876." The election of a president has been resolved by the House of Representatives three times in U.S. history: 1800, 1824, and the last time in 1876. The election of 1876 took place in a bitterly divided country and was the most controversial in our history. Susan Stitham explains what occurred and the role Oregon played. Click here to register.

Medford Lectures

Friday, September 30, 1:00 to 3:00 pm, RCC/SOU Higher Education Center, in Medford: Cell biologist John Kloetzel presents, "It's a Small World: the Life Within Us.” Cells; you can’t see them; you can’t feel them, but they are what you're made of—from foreigners in your gut to relicts of bacteria that invaded your ancient ancestors and today make your life possible. Problems in any of these can make for serious human diseases -- and the sources of some of these problems are found in our everyday environment. Click here to register
