In response to the tragic events in Ferguson, Washington University School of Medicine will host a series of town hall meetings for faculty, staff and students beginning Wednesday, Aug. 27. A key objective is to identify how members of the Medical Campus can be of help to Ferguson, its residents and the entire St. Louis region.
Some 1,740 students from across America and the globe moved into the South 40 area of Washington University’s campus last week. New students say they are eager both to help St. Louis face its challenges and to explore all it has to offer.
