SCHOLARSHIP & RESEARCH
MiniMedical School convenes Sept. 26
The seventh Emory MiniMedical School begins Sept. 26, with classes running for six consecutive Tuesday evenings in WHSCAB.
One of Evening at Emory's most popular courses, the school has given more than 3,000 Atlantans a glimpse into the wonders of the human body and how physicians diagnose and treat disease.
This year's class, hosted by Emory's own Randy Martin, will be slightly different than past offerings, with more emphasis on advances in treatment and research. Each night will feature a different subject and will highlight such topics as gene therapy for cancer, the human genome project and advances in the treatment of disease of the heart, prostate, nervous system and more.
