Spring 2013 Dartmouth Community Medical School series

7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Organization: Norris Cotton Cancer Center

Location: Kellogg Auditorium, The Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth, Hanover, NH

Discovery and Innovation in Health: It takes a team 

We live in a time of rapid scientific advances, from development of life-saving treatments, to new understanding of how we heal, to innovative insights into how we learn. These discoveries are not made by individuals, but by teams of researchers, doctors, and students. In fact, most scientific advances occur because teams of teachers and learners have built their research inquiry off of a strong foundation of previous findings, created by other research and education teams. Come hear Dartmouth-Hitchcock and Dartmouth's Geisel School of Medicine faculty, alumni; undergraduate, graduate and medical students; and post-graduate trainees talk about their own discoveries and how the knowledge they've created can help you live a healthier, longer life. 

Dartmouth Community Medical School is open to everyone—from high school students to senior citizens. All sessions are Tuesday evenings, 7:00-9:00 pm, in Kellogg Auditorium, The Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth, Hanover, NH.
