Chaplains to give peace a chance
Aside from their discount at the local mall, seniors may have more to smile about now that a Western professor is endeavouring to raise the senior-citizen's profile in the community.
Carol McWilliam, nursing professor at Western and co-chair of the National Consensus Committee, plans to demonstrate how life can improve for seniors with a new study launched this weekend.
Working with a $330,000 grant from the federal government, the study, called the National Consensus Process, hopes to show that improved policies and programs specific to the elderly can encourage them to take better care of their health.
The study is expected to conclude by March 2001.
Maintaining good ethics in business will be discussed in the 9th Annual Lynda Shaw Memorial Lecture.
Abbyann Lynch, president of Associated Medical Services and a member of the Order of Canada, will present "Values at the Bottom Line: A Case to Consider," said Chris Seres, a mechanical engineering professor at Western.
Seres said the lecture series was established in the memory of Lynda Shaw, a third-year mechanical engineering student who was murdered while returning to Western from home to write her exams. He added the lecture is open to all those who wish to attend.
This year's lecture will take place Thursday at 1 p.m. in the Engineering Sciences Building.
The annual University Students' Council/Gazette football grudge match was held Sunday with all too familiar results.
Battling the environment, tricky field conditions and questionable officiating, The Gazette's gladiators overcame the odds and countered an early USC score with two unanswered touchdowns to put the game out of reach.
The final score reflected a convincing 14-7 Gazette victory. The game's only injury? USC pride.
