Community members interested in learning more about the medical industry have the opportunity to attend health-related lectures hosted this month and next by the academic senate at UCSF Fresno.

The lectures, dubbed “mini-med school 101” will be held Tuesdays, Sept. 6 through Oct. 11, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at UCSF Fresno Center for Medical Education and Research at 155 N. Fresno Street.

Tonight, the mini-med school journey begins with a lecture about the smallest and most fragile patients. Stephan Elliot, MD, will discuss neonatology as a subspecialty of pediatrics that consists of the medical care of newborn infants, and specifically focus on the role of the neonatologist in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). David Lee, MD, will also give a lecture on improving health care transitions throughout all stages of life, focusing on the impact of chronic diseases.

On Sept. 13, lectures will focus on traveling medicine. In the first lecture, Steven Stoltz, MD, will discuss medicine on a global level including preventative care, detective work, infectious diseases and geographical trends. Then, Susanne J. Spano, MD, will talk about airline emergencies.
