Larry Diamond, Stanford Global Democracy Expert, will headline this year's Constitution Day Lecture, examining practical reforms and innovations to strengthen and depolarize American democracy.
The 30 students, all residents of Montana, hail from Browning, Dillon, Gardiner, Eureka, and Polson (to name a few). They will receive iconic white coats and stethoscopes, marking completion of orientation to medical school and the first two weeks of clinical skills training. This is the first white doctor’s coat and stethoscope they’ll receive to use throughout medical school.
The workshop is open to anyone 16 years or older who is interested in becoming a warden
McGinty and Cunningham will cover a range of topics including access to telemedicine in rural areas, community caregivers who can assist with providing quality end-of-life care, and the challenges and desire for individuals who are dying to remain in their homes.
Marc Racicot, former Governor of Montana, and Deena Mansour, Executive Director of the Maureen and Mike Mansfield Center, will discuss the Center’s work to honor the Mansfield legacy, and how we can work together to support the core values of our democracy in the Mansfield Way.
The lecture, “Montana, Mansfield and the Lost Art of Bipartisanship,” will be given by author and historian Marc C. Johnson, who will discuss what he characterizes as the complex relationship between Montana’s Mansfield, a Democrat, and Republican U.S. Sen. Everett Dirksen of Illinois during the turbulent 1960s.
