Mini Med School March-April 2014

MINI MEDICAL SCHOOL MISSION

The mission of the Mini Medical School is to Provide an interactive forum free of charge to discuss medical training, medical procedures, current medical news, and medical concerns of the public.

Session Format

Speakers for each session will be composed of physicians and / or other health care specialists typically involved in the diagnosis and treatment of the symptom or condition under discussion. In the past, speakers have presented a comprehensive picture of how symptoms lead to a diagnosis and how the initial diagnosis is distinguished from other diseases that share similar symptoms. Last year speakers main focus was on wellness and prevention of chronic diseases. Again this year the speakers were asked to focus on wellness and prevention. Following a 40 to 50 minute presentation and a refreshment break, a moderator will present questions from the audience relating to the evening's topic. The forum is not intended to provide diagnosis of specific disease concerns of the public, but to suggest paths needed for consumers to resolve their medical questions.

Location and Time

All sessions will be held from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Landsbaum Center for Health Education located at 1433 North 61/2 Street, Terre Haute, Indiana.
