Mini Med School for You

March 06, 2017

Healthcare is changing rapidly, and UC Irvine Health experts want to keep you informed of the latest developments and advances that could impact your well-being.

A five-week lecture and discussion series entitled Mini Med School 101 will kick off in March to present Orange County residents with the latest news in medical science, including a look at how UC Irvine Health is making a difference in our own backyard.

The series of lectures will be held on Wednesdays, March 15 through April 12, 5 to 7:30 p.m., at the Arnold & Mable Beckman Center of the National Academies of Sciences & Engineering on the UC Irvine campus in Irvine.

Topics include dermatology, cancer biology and immunotherapy, memory, stem cell science and radiology. Top UC Irvine Health clinicians and researchers will teach each session. Presentations will include a discussion of the latest treatments and a look at promising research, based on the weekly topic. The cost of the series is $50.

Each lecture will be preceded by a 45-minute, small-group workshop on how to be a savvy healthcare consumer. Experts will offer advice on such issues as how to make the most of your healthcare visits and how to care for aging parents.
