Celebration of Learning '13
Student Research Symposium, May 4, 2013
The Celebration of Learning is a student research symposium that began in 1997, and is the result of hundreds of hours of collaborative work between students and faculty members.
The annual event provides a venue through which students can display and share the results of Senior Inquiry, Summer Research, Honors Capstone, or other advanced research projects.
The 2013 Celebration of Learning will take place from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, May 4.
The day will open with a keynote address, followed by a session of concurrent student presentations, a light lunch and student poster session, and a second session of concurrent student presentations.
For more information, contact Dr. Margaret Farrar, associate dean, (309) 794-7313.

Keynote speaker Justin List
This year's keynote speaker will be Justin List '02, currently a third-year resident resident at Yale School of Medicine in the primary care program. List graduated from the Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine in 2010. In 2004, he earned a master's of arts and religion at Yale Divinity School with a concentration in ethics. List majored in biology and religion at Augustana. He also brought the sport of crew rowing to Augustana.
Before medical school, he pursued a fellowship at the American Medical Association's Institute for Ethics and wrote on contemporary issues in medical ethics.
During medical school, he spent ayear as a tuberculosis case finding study coordinator in Kampala, Uganda, through a National Institutes of Health research training fellowship. He also engaged in public health education in Bulbul, Kenya, throughout medical school and served as a volunteer project consultant for the non-governmental social justice-based organization Tiyatien Health in Zwedru, Liberia.
This past year he worked in two public hospitals in Kigali, Rwanda, as part of the Yale/Stanford Johnson & Johnson Scholars program. He will start in the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Clinical Scholars Program at the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor site in June where he will develop skills in health services research, health policy, and community-based participatory research while seeing patients at the Ann Arbor VA outpatient clinic.
His publications include co-editing the book Globalization, Women, and Health in the 21st Century and pieces in Journal of the American Medical Association, American Journal of Bioethics, and Hastings Center Report. He has spent time lobbying for global health causes on Capitol Hill and did a health policy internship with Illinois Rep. Danny K. Davis in Washington through an AMA grant.
Long-term he wants to work with ministries of health in East Africa to strengthen primary care health care systems and improve chronic disease and cancer management. At the core of his value system is a vision shared with colleagues to eliminate health inequalities, improve patient empowerment and flourishing, and promote human rights. He also looks forward to the potential opportunity to row in an Ann Arbor crew team after his rowing dry spell since graduating from Augustana.
