Free Mini-Med School Offers New Mexicans an Insight to Today's Critical Topics in Medicine

The Mini Med School, a free community service of UNM Continuing Education and the UNM Health Sciences Center, is an opportunity for residents to learn about critical health topics affecting their lives today. Sessions will be held every Tuesday in February from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the UNM Continuing Education Conference Center, 1634 University Blvd. N.E.

The doctors who will teach the courses are all professors at the UNM School of Medicine and specialists in emergency, internal, natural and sports medicine. Session topics include: Response to Terrorism, Get the Skinny on Fat, Shape Up and Natural Medicine.

"The UNM's Community Med School is a great way for people to get the fascinating facts they need to help manage their own care. This year's series will bring some of the most critical topics in medicine today to the public in a clear, enjoyable way. I hope to see people getting the best that the Health Sciences Center has to offer. If they come and hear our faculty, they will understand why UNM is consistently rated among the top 10 medical schools by U.S. News and World Report," said Dr. Ellen Cosgrove, professor of medicine and the associate dean of Continuing Medical Education.

Sessions will be held on four consecutive Tuesday evenings beginning Feb. 5. There is no need to register, just show up for the classes. For program questions contact Dr. Ellen Cosgrove at 272-3942.
