Do you want to peer down someone’s throat to see vocal cords in action? Hear about the most recent research on aging? Listen to a patient tell about how a chronic disease affects their life? Learn about nutrition and diabetes? Consider new approaches to treating cancer? Visit a medical research lab where scientists are finding new ways to improve health?
You can do all of these things at the 21st Mini-Med School presented by the University of Virginia’s School of Medicine. High school students through senior citizens are welcome to join us in the state-of-the-art Claude Moore Medical Education Building for this enriching program. One Mini-Med alum describes the program as:
“The most interesting and best organized educational experience I’ve ever had.”
Enthusiastic and engaging faculty members from the School of Medicine will lecture and answer questions; topics include Anatomy, Diabetes, Hypertension, Medical Research, and more. Tuition is free, there are no exams, and participants receive a certificate of attendance.
For your health and enjoyment, consider this year’s Mini-Med School.
