FHU School of Sciences and Mathematics to Host Ethics Colloquium
A Freed-Hardeman University alumnus will speak at the Ethics Colloquium hosted April 19 by the FHU School of Sciences and Mathematics. Jay Arnett, who graduated in 2006, will discuss “Lies, Darn Lies, and Statistics.”
Arnett has worked as an actuary and statistician. He is currently employed by Healthways, a leading provider of comprehensive healthcare solutions in Nashville.
The School of Sciences and Mathematics began the series of seminars on ethical issues in an attempt to expose students to various ethical situations they may encounter following graduation. In addition, since the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT) will soon include a section dealing with psychology, philosophy and ethics, Dwina Willis, FHU professor who organized the series, said, it seemed good to provide these opportunities.
The colloquium will begin at 5:30 in Ayers Auditorium in the Brown-Kopel Building. Students majoring in other disciplines, as well as the general public, are invited to attend.
