Sustainability: A Perspective from West Texas, East Africa, & Spain

  • Speaker: Greg Hannabas, School of Medicine, Class of 2015
  • Date: Wednesday, October 3, 2012
  • Time: 12:00 noon
  • Location: ACB 120

Greg Hannabas is a second year medical student and a West Texas native. He has a background in agriculture and he was a student of the Texas Tech University Honors College. His interest in medicine includes adopting sustainable practices and decreasing the environmental impact on the world.

Greg’s upbringing in West Texas and his experiences traveling to East Africa and Spain have shaped his perspective on the world, ultimately impacting his future in medicine. His presentation will focus on this intersection of world views.

As the world continues to globalize and become more socially and economically interconnected, we must consider our individual roles and how the consequences of our decisions impact others domestically & internationally. This presentation will address one medical student's thoughts on this important issue.

This presentation is part of OIA's International Programs Week. It will not be linked to the other campuses; however, it will be recorded for viewing on the OIA website at a later date.
