IOWA CITY, Iowa -- University of Iowa College of Pharmacy professor Shane Scott, Pharm.D., will be a panelist on the Iowa Public Television (IPTV) program "On Our Own Terms in Iowa," at 9:30 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 11.

"On Our Own Terms in Iowa" will broadcast live from IPTV at 9:30 p.m. following each night of the national broadcast of the four-part series "On Our Own Terms: Moyers on Dying," airing from 8 to 9:30 p.m. Sept. 10-13.

The Moyers program will focus on end-of-life issues faced by Americans today. Award-winning journalists Bill and Judith Davidson Moyers will report the stories of the dying, their families and their caregivers. The program also will deal with the issue of medical intervention and humanity.
