6th Annual Dan Dever Night

On Thursday, April 26th the Newman Center will host the Dan Dever Night for our sixth year.  Fr. Dan Dever was instrumental in starting the Newman Center here at the University of Hawaii.  We have become a home away from home for many college students.  Six years ago, Virgie Chattergy established a night on which Newman students would connect with the parish members with the “fruits” of their studies. This year’s presenters include Connor Grune, Dr. Christina Viggiano Marzo, and Dr. Vijaya Perumal.

Connor Grune is a recent graduate born and raised in Kailua, Oahu who recently received his B.A. in Religious Studies and Philosophy. During his undergraduate studies, Connor delved deeper into an understanding of Plato’s Philosophy of art and aesthetics. He will share some insights on the different philosophies of art and the different dimensions with which it holds.

Vijaya Perumal, Ph.D. is a graduate student originally from Singapore and comes with backgrounds in psychology, counseling and social work. Prior to coming to the University of Hawaii, she managed a psychosocial rehabilitation program and statewide housing program for the homeless mentally ill for several years. Her research, Gender, Perceived Health Status and Social Support Amongst Oahu’s Homeless, focused on the health status of the homeless, sheltered population on Oahu and looked at the general health, physical, and mental health statuses of the 151 participants.

Christina Viggiano Marzo, M.D. attended Punahou School, University of Notre Dame, University of Hawaii School of Public Health, and John A Burns School of Medicine. She is completing her residency in Family Medicine and will be starting a practice at Kuakini Medical Center. Her research presentation will be Improving Quality of Care and Preventive Screening Measures through Electronic Medical Record Utilization in Residency Clinics. This research looks to improve the learning experience for residents and the delivery of care given to their patients attending a Residency Clinic in an underserved area.
