Beyond Borders, Beyond Measure Photo Exhibit

WHAT: Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) students will display photographs from their trips abroad in the Beyond Borders, Beyond Measure photography exhibit during the First Friday Art Trail.

WHEN: 6 to 9 p.m. Oct. 3 (Friday)

WHERE: The Louise Hopkins Underwood Center for the Arts Icehouse Gallery, 511 Ave. J

EVENT: TTUHSC students are encouraged to participate in international programs and activities to broaden their understanding of diverse cultural influences on health care. Each year, students travel to a wide range of locations including Ethiopia, India, Vietnam and Nicaragua, some to study — all to serve. The transformations that result from this rich experience compel students to continue reaching beyond the borders of West Texas.

Photos selected for this exhibit are a sample of the many global opportunities of which TTUHSC students have been a part of. Several of the photographers will be on hand throughout the evening to share details about their personal experiences. All proceeds from the sale of photographs will go toward scholarships for TTUHSC students participating in a TTUHSC international program.
