Dr. Todd R. Cheever, M.D., associate dean of the new medical school, will be the featured guest during “An Evening With” on Tuesday, Nov. 14.

“An Evening With” is an intimate discussion with thought-leaders and experts from various fields through a moderator-led interview led by WKU alumnus and local author Larry Gildersleeve. Attendees also have the opportunity to ask questions at the end of the discussion.
