10/19/15: Climate Change And The St. Johns; Breast Reconstruction; Anne-Marie Slaughter; Cole Pepper


Jacksonville University and the UN Association of Jacksonville this weekend will hold a discussion of one of the most important political issues of the 21st century: the global response to climate change.

Also this Saturday, JU’s Marine Science Research Institute brings its event “Science on the St. Johns” to the campus waterfront - a chance for the community to learn about the impact of the river and marine life on our area.

We preview both events with Dr. Stephen Baker, JU professor of political science, Dr. Quint White, director of JU’s Marine Science Research Institute, and engineer David Bruderly, organizer and moderator of the climate change event.

As the nation marks Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we speak with  Dr. Michael Fallucco, plastic and reconstructive surgeon at St. Vincent’s Riverside, about breast reconstruction surgery options for those who have cancer.

Anne-Marie Slaughter, foreign policy expert and CEO of New America, joins us to preview her presentation on the First Coast this week as part of the World Affairs Council Jacksonville's speaker series.

And sports contributor Cole Pepper drops by to discuss the Jacksonville Jaguar's loss of the weekend, college football news and more.
