OU-Tulsa Sponsors Two Free Programs


The University of Oklahoma College of Medicine, Tulsa, is sponsoring two free programs this spring: “Everything You Wanted to Know about Medical Research” and “Common Surgeries.”

The first program titled “Everything You Wanted to Know about Medical Research,” is scheduled from 6 until 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 18 in the Helmerich Auditorium at Hillcrest Medical Center, 1120 South Utica. Participants will hear what is involved in medical research and what it takes to bring new drugs to market. Participants also will hear personally from LeAnne Taylor, Channel 6 anchor and breast cancer survivor, address the value of clinical research and what it has meant to her.

The second program titled “Common Surgeries,” consists of two Tuesday evening sessions on Thursday, May 16: “Breast Cancer made Understandable” and “Operating on Blood Vessels without Incisions”; and May 23, “Minimally Invasive Surgery: Attach of the Chop Sticks!” and “Getting to Know Your Colon.” The sessions will contain practical information for the general public. These sessions will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Conference Center at the Schusterman Center, 41st Street and Yale Avenue.
“The purpose of the program is to provide people with up-to-date health information that they can apply to themselves and their family members,” says Dr. Gerard Clancy, dean of the OU College of Medicine, Tulsa.
