BOZEMAN -- A book signing with the author of "La Clinica: A Doctor's Journey Across Borders" will be held at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 21, at the Country Bookshelf in Bozeman.

Montana State University's College of Letters and Science is sponsoring the book signing by David P. Sklar, associate dean of Graduate Medical Education at the University of New Mexico School of Medicine.

A strong interest in international health led Sklar to extensive involvement in medical projects such as relief assessment, disaster response and primary health care in Mexico, Guatemala, Venezuela, Ecuador, Tanzania, Nepal, New Guinea and the Philippines. Sklar's book explains how his earliest experiences in a remote Mexican clinic helped shape his career as an emergency physician and educator.

At 6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 22, Sklar will speak on "When Love Hurts: A Public Health Approach to Intimate Partner Violence" at the Café Scientifique to be held at Ferraro's Fine Italian Restaurant in Bozeman. The public is invited to this free informal discussion.
