Calgarians of all ages interested in health are invited to become doctors of their own bodies as the University’s mini-med school winter session kicks off today.
Mini-med school is offered by the University of Calgary to anyone interested in the inner workings of their bodies and medicinal health in general.
Co-organizer and professor at the U of C Dr. David Severson told Metro the program is more than public education.
“It’s a community service or awareness but it is so much more than that. What’s different about this is people will learn the combination of science and medicine,” Severson said.
There are a variety of lectures focusing on different topics such as liver disease, kidneys and tonight’s topic is “When good drugs go bad.”
