UD in the News April 1-6

A national science website featured biologist Chelse Prather's research, historian Julius Amin was a guest on China Global Television Network (CGTN) America's "The Heat" to discuss the legacy of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and Marian Library archivist Kayla Harris placed an editorial in one of the nation's leading Catholic publications.

Meghan Henning in religious studies explained the afterlife in The Daily Beast article "The Biggest Myths about the Resurrection" posted Easter Sunday and BlackPressUSA talked to law professor Thaddeus Hoffmeister about how money could be a factor in the retrial of Bill Cosby.

Fox 19 in Cincinnati featured a student project in the School of Engineering's Innovation Center to create a device so a blind retired Air Force veteran can center himself on a treadmill without holding onto the rails. This will allow him full range of motion during his workouts to run freely.

Local media highlighted our Celebration of the Arts, Flyer Pitch competition, the University's remembrances of the 50th anniversary of King's assassination, and tapped politics and legal experts to comment on the issues of the day.

A sample of the news coverage the first week of April is below, and you can click here to view links to all of the University's media coverage during the month.
