Schulich’s Mini Medical School visits “The Body Shop”

Wednesday, October 1, 2008

As we age, our bodies change, and no amount of cosmetic surgery can alter most of those changes. It's also a sad fact that when it comes to health, some good bodies can 'go bad'. These are just two of the topics covered in this fall's Mini Medical School, a sold-out lecture series for the London community by the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry at The University of Western Ontario.

The Mini Medical School covers topics routinely taught in the first two years of medical school, and is one of Schulich's most popular lecture series. The first class is titled: "The Body Shop: Anatomical Alterations on the Voyage from Birth to Burial," by Dr. Tim Wilson of the Department of Anatomy & Cell Biology.

The program runs for six weeks starting this Thursday, October 2nd. The lectures run from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm in Dental Sciences Building Room D1002 and the topics include:
