Cornell alumnus Dr. William Owen earned his B.A. in Biology in 1968. He attended medical school at the Roy J Lucille Carver College of Medicine at the University Of Iowa in 1972. He has had a successful career as a dermatologist and currently practices in the Wausau, Wisconsin area. Students are encouraged to join Dr. Owen for lunch regardless of whether they have a specific interest in Dermatology. Dr. Owen can field questions about MCAT preparation and the medical school application/interview process and is also very knowledgeable about “physician extenders”, including physician assistants and nurse practitioners. Dr. Owen is also implementing innovations in “tele-dermatology.” Since 2004, he has used Skype to remotely “see" approximately 20 patients per day. These patient interviews combined with file review and consultation with the patient’s primary care provider are helping extend dermatology care throughout Wisconsin. Please grab your lunch from Bon Appetit as this event is not catered.

|7:30 pm||Theatre Production: "Cloud 9" (Plumb-Fleming Studio Theatre) Armstrong Hall|
Written in 1979 and filled with time jumps, cross-dressing, gender switching, biting humor, double-casting, and age-defiance, "Cloud 9" offers an opportunity for British playwright Caryl Churchill to deploy painful satire in questioning preconceived notions of family status, gender constructs, social norms, and sexual roles. Drawing a parallel between colonial and sexual repression, Churchill sets her play first in the exploitative atmosphere of Colonial Africa during the Victorian Era, and then in the 1970s and early '80s sexual revolution of London. Though 100 years pass between acts, the same characters continue their struggles to define, maintain, or suppress their true identities under the social codes and constructs of their times. Winner of the 1981 Obie Award for Playwriting, Churchill's "Cloud 9" reveals the ties of colonial oppression and the bindings of post-colonial identities. The show runs April 26-27 and May 3-4 at 7:30 p.m. and May 5 at 2 p.m. in Plumb-Fleming Studio Theatre, Armstrong Hall. Tickets are $10 for adults, and $7 for seniors/students/youth. Free for faculty, staff, and students. For tickets contact the Box Office at 319-895-4293.
