The Horse @ Natural History Museum of Utah
Dec 22 all-day
The Horse @ Natural History Museum of Utah | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Explore the Enduring Bond between Humans and Horses:

The Natural History Museum of Utah is excited to host The Horse.

Over time, humans have preyed upon horses, domesticated them, bred them for work and play, and forged deep emotional and spiritual connections with them. Come discover the fascinating story of how humans have shaped the horse, and how the horse, in turn has shaped us.

This special exhibition includes cultural objects from around the world, a hand-painted diorama depicting the evolution of the horse, and interactives that invite you to test your strength in horsepower, identify different breeds, and peek inside a life-size, moving horse.

Explore one of Utah’s most important horse stories – the connection of the Ute people to horses. The Ute were among the first North American tribes to acquire horses from the Spanish in the 1600s. Discover how horses transformed Ute life in ways that continue to reverberate today.

The Horse opens July 19 to members and July 21 to all guests.

Horses are integral to our history and touch us as individuals. Celebrate our bond with these magnificent creatures!

Humanists of Utah, Ethics Surrounding Ebola @ Unitarian Church, Elliot Hall | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

In January, Dr. Jay Jacobson, MD, MACP will speak at our monthly meeting. Since Ebola and other infectious diseases are specters of our modern world and currently so much in the news, the ethics of who gets treatment and what treatment they should get is uppermost on the minds of humanists.

He is Professor Emeritus of Internal Medicine and Infectious Diseases and former Chief of the Division of Medical Ethics and Humanities at LDS Hospital and the University Of Utah School of Medicine. He has served on the AMA’s Council on Ethical and Judicial Affairs, the American College of Physicians’ Ethics and Human Rights Committee, local hospital Ethics Committees, and chaired the School of Medicine’s Institutional Review Board. Dr. Jacobson has authored or coauthored over 100 articles, book chapters and the book The Patient as Victim and Vector: Ethics and Infectious Disease.

From 1999 to 2003, Dr. Jacobson directed the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation project, The Partnership to Improve End-of-Life Care in Utah. He has received the American Medical Association’s Isaac Hays and John Bell Award for Leadership in Medical Ethics and Professionalism, a nomination for the American Association of Medical Colleges Humanism in Medicine Award, and the University Of Utah School Of Medicine Alumni Distinguished Service Award. In 2008, he was named a Master by the American College of Physicians. Recently retired from the University of Utah, he continues as an Infectious Disease and Medical Ethics consultant for Intermountain Healthcare Hospitals. He served on the Governor’s Commission for Pandemic Preparedness and the Utah Hospital Association’s Crisis Standards of Care Committee. He serves on the Boards of the United Jewish Federation and The Inclusion Center for Community Justice.

Not only will what he says scare the hell out of you, he will offer solutions and options for ethical approaches to these issues.We look forward to seeing you on January 8.
