The Richard D. Heffner Open Mind Lecture in Communications and Human Values
The legendary "Dr. Ruth" Westheimer grew up in a Swiss orphanage after losing her parents in the Holocaust. She emigrated to Jerusalem, and then to Paris, where she studied and taught psychology. In 1956 she immigrated to New York and in 1980 launched the revolutionary radio program "Sexually Speaking," which made her a national sensation. She has been an internationally renowned scholar, teacher, and media icon ever since, celebrated for her remarkable life, advice on sex, and famous tag phrase, "Get Some."
