U of T experts discuss various health topics in public program
The university’s first mini-med school – a six-part lecture series on health-sciences topics aimed at the general public – was launched last fall. Response was so enthusiastic that Dr. Michael Evans, course director and assistant professor of family and community medicine, quipped, “[If interest holds], this will be harder to get into than normal medical school.”
Participants, ranging in age from 13 to 90, came weekly to hear U of T experts talk about everything from aging to the prevention of heart disease to virtual medicine. Evans plans to work with faculty from disease-management areas to offer future courses.
