Dr. Cyril H. Wecht, one of the country's leading forensic pathologists, will visit the Cal U campus March 29 to discuss pathology, forensic science, and the collaborative Cal U- Duquesne University Forensic Science and Law program.

Students, faculty, and staff may attend.

Dr. Wecht will speak at 11 a.m., during the University common hour, in Room 110 of the Eberly Science and Technology Center.

Wecht served as Allegheny County coroner from 1970 to 1980, and again from 1996 to 2006. He is an adjunct professor at the Duquesne University School of Law, School of Pharmacy, and School of Health Sciences.

In fall 2000, the Duquesne University School of Law established the Cyril H. Wecht Institute of Forensic Science and Law. The Wecht Institute offers graduate degree and professional certificate programs in forensic science to a diverse group of students spanning the disciplines of law, nursing, law enforcement, pharmacy, the health sciences, business, the environmental sciences and psychology.

Along with Duquesne, the Wecht Institute collaborates with many other academic institutions.
