The University of Colorado’s popular Mini Med School Part 2: The Clinical Years begins Wednesday, Sept. 18, covering topics including stroke, obesity, women’s health, mental illness and end-of-life care.
The free nine-week lecture series on health issues, taught by faculty of the CU School of Medicine, will be held on the Anschutz Medical Campus with live video feeds in Boulder and Colorado Springs. Mini Med School Part 2 gives participants the background to understand the human body and help them take charge of their own health.
There is no charge to attend, but registration is required. To register, visit the website medschool.ucdenver.edu/minimed. The program is offered by the CU School of Medicine as a community service.
The CU Mini Med School Part 2 was founded in 2011 by Dennis Boyle, M.D., and Stephen Wolf, M.D.; it is based on the original Mini Med School founded in 1989 and attended by more than 21,000 people. Lecturers are experts in their fields who make the technical language of medicine understandable. Each presentation includes an hour on the evening’s topic followed by a question-and-answer session.
