Luther College's Charles Beatty to speak on hearing loss Oct. 5

Charles W. Beatty, Luther College class of 1973 and an established otorhinolaryngologist, will present  "Can You Hear Me Now?!- Hearing Loss and its Treatment" at 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 5, Valders Hall of Science, Room 206, on the Luther campus.

The presentation is part of the Hoslett Memorial Lecture Series, named in honor of Professor Sherman A. Hoslett, and his work in the biology department at Luther for 30 years.

The lecture is open to the public with no charge for admission

Beatty was asked, as one of the distinguished graduates of the Luther biology department, to share his expertise and academic interests as part of the homecoming celebration.

Beatty was the oldest of five children in his family who all attended Luther, along with his wife who was a pianist and music major.

Professor of otorhinolaryngology at the Mayo Graduate School of Medicine in Rochester, Minn. Beatty finished his degree at Luther, went onto medical school at the University of Iowa, and then interned and eventually claimed residency at the very clinic he works at today.

The Hoslett lecture serves to remind students that academics are the heart of Luther, to recognize the success of our past graduates, and to inform current students that their educational endeavors can lead them to fulfilling careers.
