UO Graduate Alumni William Hawley, expert on mosquito-borne illnesses, launches the Graduate School's Distinguished Alumni Speakers Program (DASP) Wednesday, October 5th!

UO Graduate School alums are doing amazing work! To showcase some of their accomplishments, four distinguished alumni of the Graduate School will come back to Eugene to speak about their work and lives since graduating. These talks – planned in concert with the departments from which the alums graduated – will be open to the campus community and beyond.

The series starts this Wednesday, with William Hawley, who serves as chief in the entomology branch in the Division of Parasitic Diseases and Malaria at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Dr. Hawley, whose career is especially intriguing given the current news about the Zika virus, received a PhD from the Biology Department. His first talk "Pathways to a Career in Global Public Health" is on Wednesday October 5 from 4-5 pm in room 101 of the Jaqua Center. A second talk "Malaria Elimination in Ecological and Evolutionary Context," (more specifically targeted for biologists but still open to all), will be held on Thursday from 12-1 pm in Lawrence Lounge (room 115, Lawrence Hall).

Please join us in welcoming these distinguished Ducks, as they come back to the roost – and listen to their tales of adventure and accomplishment!
