ST. GEORGE – Dixie State College of Utah will host the fourth President’s Colleagues of DSC meeting of the 2012-13 academic year on Monday, featuring a presentation on “successful aging.”
The meeting will be held at noon Monday in Room 156 of the Russell C. Taylor Health Science Center, located on the River Road campus of Intermountain Healthcare Southwest Region’s Dixie Regional Medical Center. It is free and open to the public.
The presentation will be delivered by DSC Assistant Professor of Psychology Dr. Michael Rahilly, who instructs in developmental and clinical psychology and specializes in child-parent mental health, developmental assessment and interventions for children with developmental delays. Rahilly earned a doctorate in human development at the University of California, Davis, and became personally interested in successful aging a year and a half ago, when he witnessed a physically fit 70-year-old man pass him while hiking in the Subway Canyon in Zion National Park.
Founded nearly 20 years ago by former DSC president Dr. Douglas Alder, the President’s Colleagues of DSC is a group of retired professors and other professionals who live mostly in Washington County. Dr. Alder, who also started an honors program at the school, organized the Colleagues as a way to increase academic activities on campus. They meet once a month during the academic year to hear presentations from each other and invited guests.
Their next meeting is scheduled for Feb. 4 and will feature a discussion about the European Union and the Euro by Colleagues member Bob Fehlman.
