Public Invited to UA Mini-Medical School Evening Lecture Series

Maybe you chose to go to law school or enter the business world. Or, maybe you just overslept chemistry class or played too much Frisbee on the quad. For whatever reason, like most people, you didn't go to medical school. Still think you've got what it takes?
All you need is a sense of curiosity and some free evenings this spring. The UA Mini-Medical School is a 5-week series of easy-to-understand, entertaining and educational medical lectures for the general public, taught by UA College of Medicine faculty physicians and researchers.

All lectures are held from 6 to 8 p.m. in Room 2117 of the UA College of Medicine, 1501 N. Campbell Ave.
