Release Date: July 5, 2006

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- The topic of the Aug. 10 lecture in the UBThisSummer Lecture Series presented by the University at Buffalo has been changed due to the death of scheduled lecturer Paul Senese, associate professor of political science.

The new lecture for that date is entitled "From Caring to Care-Giving: How Families Cope with Chronic Illness" and will be presented by Deborah P. Waldrop, associate professor in the UB School of Social Work.

As with all UBThisSummer lectures, the program will begin at 4 p.m. in 201 Natural Sciences Complex on the UB North (Amherst) Campus.

An abstract of Waldrop's lecture and all lectures in the series can be found on the UBThisSummer Web site at http://ubthissummer.buffalo.edu/lectures2.html.

The series continues on July 13 with a lecture entitled "Culture and Disability." It will be presented by John H. Stone, clinical associate professor, Department of Rehabilitation Science, UB School of Public Health and Health Professions, and director of the Center for International Rehabilitation Research Information and Exchange.
