Tom Morris to address joint dental research and education meetingOn Wednesday, March 8, the historic first joint meeting of the American Association for Dental Research and the American Dental Education Association will kick off with a Joint Opening Plenary Session at 9 a.m., in the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel. More than 3,000 research scientists and academicians from across the country and around the world are expected to attend.
Providing the focal point for the session will be Tom Morris, of the Morris Institute for Human Values (Wilmington, NC). Morris has become one of the most active business speakers in America, due to his unusual ability to bring the greatest wisdom of the past to bear on today's challenges. A native of North Carolina, he is a graduate of the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, and has been honored, along with Michael Jordan, as a recipient of UNC's "Distinguished Young Alumnus Award". He holds doctoral degrees in both philosophy and religious studies from Yale University, and for 15 years was professor of philosophy at the University of Notre Dame.
In his address, "True Success: A New Philosophy of Excellence," Morris will remind his audience that, in challenging and uncertain times, people need ideas they can trust--ideas that have stood the test of time and that can help them achieve success in even the most demanding situations. From Plato and Aristotle to the present day, the wisest people who have ever thought about success and excellence have left bits and pieces of powerful advice for attaining true success in life and work in even the most turbulent of times. Morris has put all these important insights together as a simple, complete framework of seven universal conditions for achieving deeply satisfying, sustainable excellence in all aspects of life. In this high-energy, entertaining session, he will reveal some of the most fundamental ethical roots of personal and institutional greatness that are far too often overlooked, and that, together, can provide people with the most reliable basis for moving forward.
