Tackling tough issues

“Why Planned Parenthood?” was the subject of the first Senior Symposium lecture of the semester on Monday, Jan. 23 at noon in Memorial Ballroom, Hall Campus Center.

Joan MacCallum, president of the Lynchburg League of Women Voters, and David Nova, director of strategic initiatives for Planned Parenthood Health Systems, were the guest speakers.

As the number of people hits 7 billion, population is the theme of this year’s Senior Symposium, an academic tradition at LC that brings significant texts, questions, and ideas to bear on various contemporary issues. Students meet weekly to listen to a public lecture, then participate in small group discussions.
