If you’ve always been curious about medical school or want to learn from top physicians about health conditions affecting you and your family, the University at Buffalo School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences is presenting its Mini Medical School this summer.
The UB Mini Medical School consists of several lectures on topics ranging from childhood cancers and healthy eating to hot flashes in menopause and liver disease. Lectures continue from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesdays for the next three weeks in 150 Farber Hall on the UB South Campus.
Mini Medical School is free to UB students. Members of the public may attend any evening at a cost of $5.
“UB started the Mini Medical School in 1997 as a public service to the community,” said Dr. Roseanne Berger, Mini Medical School director and senior associate dean of graduate medical education at UB. “We’re continuing that tradition because we want to provide the public and people interested in careers in medicine with a fun, casual and informative introduction to medicine.”
Lecture topics include:
Tuesday: “Ordered Eating: Simple Foods for Optimum Living,” presented by Peter Horvath, and “Eating Disorders,” a talk by Dr. Dalinda A. Condino.
July 15: “Now’s the Time: The Mandate to Treat Hepatitis C,” presented by Dr. Andrew Talal, and “Fatty liver: The Coming Plague” .
July 22: “Problems of the Pelvis,” presented by Dr. Tova Ablove, and “Marvels of Menopause,” a talk by Dr. Vanessa Barnabei.
