The College of Alameda is hosting a Day of the Dead celebration from 12:30 p.m. to 2 p.m. today on the Quad. The celebration, which is free and open to the public, includes art, music and food.
The event is sponsored by Latinos Unidos, the West Alameda Business Association, Jamba Juice and SF Hispanic Lions Club, in partnership with the College of Alameda Student Activities Office and ASCOA.
Also today, former American Medical Association president Lonnie R. Bristow will give a talk titled “A Doctor’s Insight Into the Real Issues in Health Care Reform” at the Grandview Pavilion, 300 Island Drive. The 45-minute talk will begin at 12:45 p.m., and Bristow will remain until 2 p.m. to take your questions.
Admission is $20 for the talk plus a buffet lunch; if you’re not interested in lunch, a $5 donation is requested (the money goes to TRF Polio Plus, a global vaccination program). Bristow is coming at the invitation of the Rotary Club of Alameda, and his talk is co-sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Alameda.
