Working Speaker Series

May 12, 2019 | 11:00 am - 11:45 am
Place : Christy Room

Working is the theme of an ongoing speaker series in which people talk about what they do all day and how they feel about what they do.

This session features guest speaker Bruce Carlson.

After two chance events in college redirected him from a career in fish biology to the study of regeneration, and human embryonic development.

Bruce embarked on a 40 year career as a professor at the University of Michigan Medical School. His research led to his living in five different countries and writing 15 books. Along the way, he married one of his medical students, Jean, who later spent 20 years working with him in the lab. In 1989, another chance encounter connected Bruce to the Fetzer Institute, an association that has continued in various capacities until he became interim executive vice-president last year. As of February, Bruce is delightfully unemployed.

Bruce’s talk will take place after a brief coffee break following the Sunday morning service.
