Our Community Calendar is a resource we offer to all qualified nonprofits. Community Calendar events are highlighted live, on-air throughout the day on KCPW. Featured events are chosen at random. You will also find all current Community Calendar events listed here at kcpw.org.
PLEASE NOTE: Our Community Calendar now also has a physical home. Following the criteria listed below, bring professional materials (no handwritten signs please) promoting your event to the KCPW studios at 210 East 400 South, Suite 10. We’ll happily hang them in our window for all Library Square traffic to see.
To submit an event to the Community Calendar, the event must meet the following criteria:
- The event must take place in Utah.
- The organization promoting the event must be a qualified 501 (c) (3) charity or political subdivision.
- The event cannot promote a religious organization or individual.
If your event meets these criteria, click “Post Your Event” below. Include your contact information in case we have any questions. Otherwise, your event may not get published.
KCPW would like to encourage you to make the most of your post by adding a featured image and links to your organization. Utilize the provided field boxes (i.e. location, ticket information) to display information as accurately and quickly as possible. Please do not submit duplicate postings for the same event.
**Please submit requests at least 10-14 days before your event – event listings read on-air are chosen at random, at least two weeks prior to the event.**
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. Dr. Jacobson is supremely qualified to discuss these issues with us. 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.
Travel is now the world’s largest industry. How can the economic power of tourism help promote human rights and the environment? One solution is for travelers to “vote with their wings,” visiting countries with high scores in human rights, social welfare, and environmental protection. By following Jeff Greenwald’s 13 common-sense precepts on the road, travelers can become empowered to change the world.
Oakland-based writer and activist Jeff Greenwald is the executive director and cofounder of Ethical Traveler, a nonprofit organization dedicated to human rights and environmental protection. The author of six acclaimed travel books (including Shopping for Buddhas, now in its 25th Anniversary Edition), he also wrote and performs in a one-man show, Strange Travel Suggestions.
