An event marking local observance of World Refugee Day will feature a panel discussion along with the premiere of a Windsor-produced film documenting the experiences of young refugees.

The film, entitled Through Their Eyes: Stories of Refugee Youth, brings to the forefront the often-overlooked experiences of young refugees living in our community, says panelist Erwin Selimos, a doctoral student of sociology.

Lecture to look at the physics of radiation therapy for cancer

Radiation therapy is widely used for cancer treatment; and all radiation treatments aim to maximize tumour cell kill while limiting healthy tissue radiation exposure.

In a free public lecture Wednesday, entitled “Up Close and Personal: Radiation Treatments for Cancer,” Rowan Thomson of Carleton University will focus on the physics of “up close” radiation treatments for cancer and research aimed at personalizing them.

Dr. Thomson is an assistant professor in Carleton’s Department of Physics, She received Ontario's Polanyi Prize in Physics in 2011.
