Through the extraordinary energy of Temple University’s President, Dr. Ann Weaver Hart, the candy apple red Temple has become both visible and vibrant in the City of Brotherly Love. Her wise embrace is not merely focused on creating well educated, driven- to- succeed graduates, but on connecting Temple alums in ways that make a stronger, more sensitive, more compassionate Philadelphia.
On Monday, August 29, The Temple University School of Communication and Theater will rebroadcast a tender story of how the technological skills of one graduate dramatically changed the life of another. The documentary, entirely created by the School of Communication and Theater, illustrates how medicine and compassion intertwine to create an astounding smile makeover in a matter of hours.
Dr. Tom Balshi, a Diplomate of the American Board of Prosthodontists and practicing specialist in Fort Washington, also serves as a clinical professor to Temple’s Kornberg School of Dentistry. The woman whose life he touched for the love of Temple is Suzanne Bartch, a single mother in the city who recently received her Masters Degree in Social Work from Temple
The documentary will broadcast at 12:30 and 8:30 PM on August 29, or 5:30 AM on August 30. In Philadelphia County it can be viewed on Comcast 50 and Verizon 45. Outside the city, it can be viewed on line at templetv.net at the same times. For more information, call the Pi Dental Center in Fort Washington at 215-646-6334.
