Aired on Friday, December 19th.

In late October, Dr. Gerard P. “Gerry” Clancy was selected as vice president for health affairs and dean of The University of Tulsa's new College of Health Sciences. Dr. Clancy is our guest on this edition of ST. He has served as president of OU-Tulsa for the past eight years, and his tenure here at TU will begin on January 1st, when the newly created College of Health Sciences officially begins operations. As TU President Steadman Upham noted in a press release issued at the time of Dr. Clancy's appointment: "TU is proud to welcome such a well-respected member of our community and of the medical field to our campus as we embark on this bold new strategy to improve the health of underserved citizens.... Dr. Clancy is a tireless advocate for both health and education and, as such, is the ideal candidate to fill this crucial role. This is an exciting day for our students, our faculty, and our future." Thus Dr. Clancy speaks with us about what his new duties and goals at TU will be, and about how TU's College of Health Sciences will function more generally.

Rich Fisher passed through KWGS about thirty years ago, and just never left. Today, he is the general manager of Public Radio Tulsa, and the host of KWGS’s public affairs program, StudioTulsa, which celebrated its twentieth anniversary in August 2012 . As host of StudioTulsa, Rich has conducted roughly four thousand long-form interviews with local, national, and international figures in the arts, humanities, sciences, and government. Very few interviews have gone smoothly. Despite this, he has been honored for his work by several organizations including the Governor's Arts Award for Media by the State Arts Council, a Harwelden Award from the Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa, and was named one of the “99 Great Things About Oklahoma” in 2000 by Oklahoma Today magazine.
