GWs Luther W. Brady Art Gallery has been showcasing art on the universitys Foggy Bottom campus for 15 years. The new exhibition, Drawn From: 15 Years of Exhibitions at the Luther W. Brady Art Gallery, celebrates highlights from the gallerys history and the universitys extensive art collection and new gifts of work by Howard Hodgkin and Holly Trostle Brigham. Past exhibitions highlighted in the new show fall into three categories: historical, thematic, and major modern and contemporary artists. Collaborations include an exhibition with the Picker Art Gallery, Colgate University, followed by collaborations with the Reading Public Museum, Demuth Museum, Stetson University and New Art Centre in UK, among others have extended the ability to show artists of international scope. Beginning with Epic Paintings in 2002, ongoing relationships with New York institutions and major artists have brought the GW Community into contact with art never before seen in Washington. By joining university-wide initiatives, such as in Imagination and Knowledge: Centennial Celebration of Einsteins Miraculous Year, when Einsteins personal effects were on view alongside photographs of the man, scientific input from the Physics Department enriched the educational impact of the initiative. Exhibitions such as Enlightened Thinking, Lasting Appeal responded to a citywide celebration of French culture and featured Henry Bacons The Boston Boys and General Gage 1775, a major work in the GW collection. The Luther W. Brady Art Gallery is the professional showcase for art at GW. Luther W. Brady (B.A. '46, M.D. '48), the gallery's namesake and benefactor, is a world-renowned oncologist who earned his undergraduate and graduate degrees at GW. He also received the honorary degree of doctor of fine arts from GW in May 2004, has served as a member of the University's Board of Trustees and received the Presidents Medal in 2015. Over the past 15 years, the gallery has created a niche in the community fo...

DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL AND OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH 2017 Research Seminar Series The global burden of ambient air pollution on asthma Susan Anenberg, PhD Associate Professor, Environmental and Occupational Health Milken Institute School of Public Health at GW Exposure to ambient fine particulate matter (PM2.5), ozone, and nitrogen dioxide (NO2) pollution is associated with asthma exacerbation among populations around the world. Approximately 358 million people worldwide have asthma, and this number is projected to increase in the future. Previous studies indicate that air pollution could contribute substantially to national or city-specific asthma burdens. However, the burden of air pollution on asthma globally has not been quantified, including by leading global burden of disease studies. Here we show that ambient air pollution is responsible for tens of millions of asthma emergency department visits globally in 2015, about 40% of which occur in China and India. Our results show that ambient air pollution could be responsible for 10-20% of asthma exacerbation globally and that mitigating air pollution is needed to address the growing global asthma burden. Date: Monday, October 16, 2017 Time: 12:30 pm -1:30 pm Location: 4th Floor Conference Room, 950 New Hampshire Ave. NW, Washington, DC 20052 WebEx: Phone: +1-855-282-6330 Access Code: 739 142 510 All are welcome - A light lunch will be provided following the seminar- RSVPs strongly encouraged.

Join the Instructional Technology Lab to learn about Blackboard! Have you ever had students wondering why they got a certain grade on their assignment, or what their grade was made of? Consider using Blackboard rubrics. A Blackboard rubric lists evaluation criteria for a graded activity. Rubrics can help students organize their efforts to meet the requirements of an assignment. Instructors can use rubrics to assess the students consistently against a set of criteria, and to explain their evaluations to students. This workshop will cover the basics of Blackboard rubrics. Participants will learn how to create a rubric, associate it to a graded activity and effortlessly grade using an interactive rubric. This workshop will be held through Blackboard Collaborate. Please register to receive a link to the Blackboard Collaborate session.
