    Convocation 2017

    Location:
    Margaret Williams Theatre
    Time:2:00 PM2:00 PM

    Convocation marks the traditional beginning of the academic year and offers a unique opportunity to rededicate ourselves to NJCU’s mission of teaching, research and service. The ceremony serves as a proud reminder of the tremendous depth of knowledge of our faculty, and of their commitment to share this knowledge with the NJCU community.

    The 2017 Convocation ceremony will take place on Thursday, October 5 at 2 p.m. in the Margaret Williams Theatre on the Second Floor of Hepburn Hall.

    The keynote address will be delivered by Dr. Yvonne S. Thornton, a double board-certified specialist in obstetrics, gynecology, and maternal-fetal medicine who has been an outspoken advocate on women’s health issues.

    Thornton is the first black woman in the United States to be board-certified in high-risk obstetrics and to be accepted into the New York Obstetrical Society. She has been listed in New York Magazine as one of the top 10 maternal-fetal medicine specialists in New York City.

    Thornton is the national best-selling author of the memoir, The Ditchdigger’s Daughters, published in 1995. Featured on the Oprah Winfrey Show, the book is a tribute to Thornton’s parents and was translated into 19 languages, adapted for a World Premiere Movie, and nominated for the Peabody Award and the Cable ACE Award for Best Picture. She also authored the medical text, Primary Care for the Obstetrician and Gynecologist.

    As senior perinatologist in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at The New York Hospital-Cornell Medical Center, Thornton established and developed the program for a new form of early, prenatal diagnostic testing known as CVS, or, chorionic villus sampling.

    Faculty, professional staff and students are invited and encouraged to attend the ceremony.
