See Stars at St. Vincent's Planetarium

The university has three more shows left this fall — each including a special tribute to Mr. Rogers.



SEEING STARS AT SAINT VINCENT COLLEGE

Ever wonder what the stars looked like in “Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood?”  Round up the kids (or kids at heart) and head to Saint Vincent College to find out.
 
SVC has three planetarium shows left this fall — Oct. 13, Nov. 10 and Dec. 8 — each including a special 30-minute show, “The Sky Over Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood,” with characters from the Neighborhood of Make-Believe. But don’t worry — there are plenty of other shows for adults, too.

Imagine sitting in SVC’s top-of-the-line, high-tech Angelo J. Taiani Planetarium and Astronaut Exhibit with the stars close-up and personal — for free.

GANNON, LECOM STRENGTHEN EAP BONDS WITH DENTAL AGREEMENT

Gannon and the Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine (LECOM) are ready to welcome new smiling faces that want to help others clean up their dirty mouths. The schools recently agreed to add new students to the Early Acceptance Program (EAP) by offering the opportunity for students to study in dentistry, too (Gannon and LECOM already have EAP agreements for pre-med and pre-pharmacy).

Students interested in the program can apply for early admission during their senior year of high school; they’re encouraged to pursue bachelor’s degrees in biology once they get to college. This “4+4” program (four years at Gannon and four at LECOM) will help students gain clinical and community-based care experience in dentist offices and clinics while earning their D.M.D. And if you're not already hooked, remember that LECOM dental students start their four-year stretch at LECOM’s Bradenton, Fla., location.

If that doesn’t bring the Orbit Gum beach scene commercial to mind, we don’t know what will!


CHATHAM CWE PRESENTER SUSAN CATALANO SPEAKS UP ABOUT FINDING A CURE FOR ALZHEIMER'S

Did you know that there are no disease-modifying treatments for Alzheimer’s disease available on the prescription market?

In 2007, Susan Catalano combined her entrepreneur spirit with her knowledge of biology to found Cognition Therapeutics Inc. to confront that very problem. Cognition’s mission focuses on discovering medications that can halt or reverse brain changes that cause Alzheimer’s disease. Moved from the Golden State to Pittsburgh, Cognition now has access to innovative health-care resources needed for the mission’s advancement at its disposal.

On Sept. 14, Catalano will speak at Chatham University as part of the Center for Women’s Entrepreneurship (CWE) Women Business Leaders Breakfast Series. This event is from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. at the James Laughlin Music Center, and the $25 admission fee includes a pre-presentation continental breakfast and networking session.
