New York City, Alumni Sunset Happy Hour at Pier 66/Frying Pan (Alumni)
Time: 6:00 PM- 9:00 PM

Mingle with the Skidmore alumni community and friends for sunset on the Hudson at the Frying Pan on Pier 66. Enjoy the sights and sounds of New York harbor while sipping cocktails at the Lightship Frying Pan, a historic ship that sank and remained underwater for three years before being raised and restored to her former glory. Pier 66 Maritime is a former railroad barge complete with a caboose, bar and grill where you can enjoy a sunset view rarely seen from Manhattan that you will not want to miss.



***Don't forget to check in and you'll be placed in a drawing for door prizes. You'll also get a green Skidmore sticker so you can easily find other Skiddies.***

Skidmore will have a small reserved section with some seating available starting at 6:00 p.m. and lasting through the evening.

Thursday 6/21

Greenwich, CT, Smith Lecture (Alumni)
Time: 6:00 PM- 8:00 PM

Join alumni, parents and friends for a lecture by Professor Smith highlighting her research about the cardiac events associated with firefighters. Firefighters accept tremendous risks to protect the communities they serve, and most of us realize that firefighting is a dangerous activity. However, many are surprised to learn that sudden cardiac events are the leading cause of line of duty deaths among firefighters accounting for approximately 50% of their fatalities. Furthermore, firefighting has the highest occupational rate of line of duty death due to sudden cardiac events. This lecture will investigate individual factors and job stressors that increase the risk of a sudden cardiac event in this unique occupational group. The presentation will highlight research documenting the physiological strain associated with firefighting and recent efforts to find ways to mitigate that strain. After the lecture you will have an opportunity to connect with Professor Smith and other members of the greater Skidmore community.

Smith has been a member of the Skidmore faculty since 1990 and teaches classes in anatomy and physiology, exercise physiology, and the cardio respiratory aspects of human performance. She is regarded as an authority on the cardiovascular stresses associated with firefighting and was the 2009 Edwin M. Moseley Faculty Research lecturer. Selection as the Moseley Lecturer is the highest honor the Skidmore faculty can confer upon a colleague.
