Jewish Life at Duke
From funny, personal stories of his mother’s reaction to his research awards – “that’s very nice, Bobby, but it’s not the Nobel” – to wise advice about mentorship and persistence, Dr. Robert Lefkowitz delighted over 200 viewers who tuned in to his virtual interview at Jewish Life at Duke with former Blue Devil David M. Rubenstein ’70 earlier this week. The conversation, introduced by Emma Mehlhop ‘21, a Jewish senior studying Economics and Global Health, was an entertaining and insightful peek inside the life and work of the cardiologist turned legendary scientist whom the Swedish press corps dubbed “the happiest Laureate.” Lefkowitz shared stories of his career path, family and personal life, and how his Jewish values shaped his life.

Turkish Flag

Today, we celebrate Turkey in honor of the many global scholars and spouses from Turkey. A few weeks ago, Merve Falan gave a fantastic presentation about her home country. She shared about the country’s history and culture and even provided Turkish treats for everyone to try. Merve shared that “Istanbul is a magical city that tells you about everything. The city is a storyteller.” By the end of her presentation, most of the audience was ready to pack their bags and travel to Turkey.
