Sept. 19, 2017 | Tolerance has aided the rise of the world’s great empires and intolerance has abetted their fall, said Erick Messias, M.D., Ph.D., M.P.H., associate dean for faculty affairs in the UAMS College of Medicine.

Messias’ Sept. 13 lunchtime lecture, which followed Day of Empire, a book by Yale Law School Professor Amy Chua, was the second in a series of events hosted by the UAMS Center for Diversity Affairs during September to highlight UAMS Diversity Month.
