Hello BME301 Students;


Where can you find Dr. RRK on Sunday morning at 10:00 am?  Probably yelling at her children to do their homework.  Where would she like to be?  Lying in the hammock, tuned into Selected Shorts on KUT.  Selected Shorts is a wonderful radio program where actors read short stories.  Some of my favorites are stories by Ron Carlson, especially the H Street Sledding Record and Bigfoot Stole My Wife.  Every year, Selected Shorts goes on tour and comes to Austin.  March 7th and 8th they will be at Bass Concert Hall; you can get tickets through KUT.  I will be there on Saturday night – I highly recommend this! 


Fellow student, Meredith, has sent a great list of speakers that will be at UT talking about public health issues.

Finally, Kristen makes this week’s reading recommendation:  The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon is an awesome book.  It is the first person account of an autistic boy's navigation through relationships, while he tries to figure out who murdered his neighbor's dog.”
