Join us for an insiders view of life in Saudi Arabia from the perspective of an American woman teaching at King Saud university. Alice Little spent four years there as a Professor and Department Head of Nursing, and she will present an overview of both work and play as she experienced it. She will talk about the conflicts and contradictions between an emerging modern economy and a traditional Islamic society.

Alice Little will describe the genesis of the Royal Family, religion, military, health care, role of women, housing and recreation. These topics often merge because Islam is more than a religion, it is a way of life.

Alice Little earned degrees from the University of Pittsburgh, University of Pennsylvania and Temple University. In addition to King Saud University Dr Little has had academic appointments at the University of Kentucky, Mercy College, Delaware state and Holy Family University. She is currently director of Nursing at River's Edge Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Philadelphia.
