Snyder Institute Mini-Medical School is designed for members of the general public who are interested in learning more about chronic diseases and topics such as immunotherapy, effects of cannabis use, multiple sclerosis, cardiovascular disease, asthma, itch and chronic pain, and the relationship between diet and gluten sensitivity.
You won’t graduate with a medical degree after attending our Mini-Medical School series but you will gain more insight to healthy living and chronic diseases.
There are no pre-requisites to attend these lectures and they are open to the public from high school students to retirees.
Each lecture will combine basic science with real life clinical situations in order to give Calgarians a better understanding of the effects of chronic diseases on the body. Each presenter is highly respected in their field of research, and is a current member of the Snyder Institute for Chronic Diseases at the Cumming School of Medicine with the University of Calgary.
There is no cost to attend a lecture but online registration is required. We look forward to seeing you at our lectures.
Mini-Medical School will take place one Monday evening a month from 6:30-8:45pm.

Comment by BBH: Great opportunity to learn from those in the know. Prevention is the key to help reduce the impact of underlying conditions which may influence how quickly our musculoskeletal (MSK) injuries recover.
