Parachute Debate

This event currently has no upcoming dates.


Members of the Student Oncology Society are pleased to host TCMC’s first “Parachute Debate.” The community is welcome to attend this fun debate as faculty members argue their case regarding who should receive the last parachute.

The mock debate:
Three members of TCMC faculty are flying back to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport on a direct flight on Rainforest Air after presenting a paper on the TCMC Longitudinal Integrated Curriculum at the Falkland Islands Conference on Keys to Longitudinal Education (aka FICKLE). Their plane will run out of fuel over the Amazon, their pilot has jumped, and has left them with one parachute. Come watch Dr. Tracy, Dr. Joyce, and Dr. Brereton debate and see who is victorious and receives the remaining parachute and why!

Please note: this is an activity to build community and is intended as entertainment only.


Participants from left: Eleanor Gillis, Tad Witek, Dr. Gerry Tracy, Dr. Chris Adonizio, Dr. Harmar Brereton, Tom Churilla, Sean Wallace, and Julia Kolcharno. Missing from photo: Dr. Jennifer Joyce.
