Terry Dolan at The Book Stall

Join us Sun., Apr. 30th at 2 p.m. when we welcome Dr. Terry Dolan of the UW-Madison Waisman Center to discuss his new book, CHILDREN OF THE KINGDOM: BRIDGING GENETICS AND ISLAM TO SAVE THE NEWBORNS OF SAUDI ARABIA.

"This is a book that is about a changing Saudi Arabia, the globalization of concern for children, the power of science, a family adventure, and hope. But mostly, it s about one scholar's lifelong goal of improving the lives of children at risk and one Prince s goal of improving the lives of the children of his nation. It is a tale of possibility. We need many more like it." - Timothy Shriver, Chairman, Special Olympics International

Dr. Terry Dolan received his B.A. in Psychology from Dakota Wesleyan University in Mitchell, S.D., in 1962 and a Ph.D. in Psychology and Physiology at the University of Texas Austin in 1966. After four years of post-doctoral research and training at the Center for Neural Sciences at Indiana University, he began a 36-year academic career in research and science administration.

The phone rang and my life changed. It was an executive search firm. A "substantive and reputable international entity" needed help with a major, long-term health research project critical to the children of its nation and I had been pinpointed as one of the best people in the world capable of addressing their problem.
