Please join us for the next High Noon on May 24th. We will be celebrating Asian Pacific American Heritage Month. During this session we explore the history and culture of Korea.
This month we welcome John and Joanna Ra to take us on tour of Korea. They will provide a brief history of Korea, an overview of the Korean War and provide details of modern day Korea, including food, music, film, communications and Taekwondo.
I hope can join us for this exciting adventure – a tour of Korea without leaving Elmwood Ave!
Join us on Wednesday, May 24, in the History of Medicine Room at Miner. Feel free to invite your colleagues and bring your lunch. For more information, contact Linda Hasman at 275-3399.
