May 10 partnership lecture focuses on future of Durham museum 
There's still time to RSVP for Thursday's lecture with Leo Smith, executive director of the Durham Western Heritage Museum. After a $1 million rejuvenation of the museum's permanent exhibits, the museum now presents a colorful and interactive world that puts the past at your fingertips. This, coupled with a traveling exhibit schedule that reaches into 2012, has transformed the Durham into one of Omaha's leading educational and cultural resources. Smith will present an in-depth look at where the museum is headed and what it takes to get there on Thursday at noon in the Eppley Science Hall Amphitheater. Contact Jill Carson at jlcarson@unmc.edu to RSVP for the presentation. Employees are encouraged to bring their lunch to the presentation. Smith's presentation is part of the Time Travelers partnership between the museum and UNMC. The partnership allows medical center employees and students to receive free admission to the museum year round with a valid identification badge.
