JAN. 17 - Hospice Savannah Concludes Lecture Series With Law Professor

Hospice Savannah will host a community lecture and book signing to conclude this year’s lecture series.

Paul A. Lombardo, professor of Law, Georgia State University, will be the guest speaker for the third annual Hospice Savannah Lecture Series on Jan. 27 and 28, 2011. His visit to Savannah is underwritten by sponsorships from Hospice Pharmacia, Dr. Martin Greenberg, and by Smith Barid, LLC, Estate Planning, Elder Law and Special Needs Attorneys.

Professor Lombardo will offer the community lecture, book signing and complimentary luncheon on Friday, Jan. 28: “Law at the End of Life. What we have learned from Quinlan to Schiavo.” The event will be held in the church hall of Skidaway United Methodist Church, 54 Diamond Causeway. This event is free and open to the public; to RSVP, contact Jamey Espina, Director of Community Services, at 629-1095.

Espina says, “The public will benefit from Professor Lombardo’s insights into the critical importance of making one’s advance healthcare and legal wishes known. He is a fascinating man who has served as an historical consultant for several movies, including Martin Scorsese’s 2006 “The Golden Door” that explored the impact of eugenic screenings on Ellis Island immigrants. He was also a contributor for the U.S. Memorial Holocaust Museum Exhibit, Deadly Medicine: Creating the Master Race.”

Lombardo joined the Georgia State University’s College of Law in 2006 and teaches courses in Genetics and the Law, the History of Bioethics, Mental Health Law and Legal Regulation of Human Research.  His book “Three Generations, No Imbeciles: Eugenics, the Supreme Court and Buck v. Bell” (2008) earned him designation as a 2009 Georgia Author of the Year. At times the book reads like a novel rather an historic account as he develops personalities like a fiction writer while maintaining scholarly historic accuracy.
