“The Poetry of Time and the Disorientation of Memory,” a short film by Justin Rubin, music, UMD, and John Paul Mergliano, Digital Media, Wilmington College, was shown
on October 1 at Nolte Center, UMTC, and October 2 at Weber Music Hall, UMD. The Poetry of Time and the Disorientation of Memory is an interdisciplinary research project funded by the U of M Institute for Advanced Study and the Office for the Vice President for Research as part of the University Symposium on Time. The project was produced at the Visualization and Digital Imaging Lab at UMD.

The College of Pharmacy, Duluth, is scheduling appointments for their Pharmaceutical Care Clinic. This fall’s clinic is a required activity for student pharmacists and provides an opportunity for them to help people with their medications under the supervision of an experienced pharmacist. During the appointment, the student pharmacist will conduct a thorough review of medical history and medications. Following the appointment, the student will work to develop a plan for ensuring medications are used appropriately, are working, are safe, and are convenient and will provide recommendations to resolve any medication related problems. Because patients are participating in our student’s education, this service is free. To receive more information or to schedule an appointment, please call 218-726-6800. Clinics are scheduled for the afternoons of October 15 and 16 and November 5, 6, 19, and 20.
