Sign ups underway for UC Davis’ Mini Medical School

Enrollment has begun for the 2015 session of UC Davis’ acclaimed Mini Medical School, a six-week course on healthy aging that begins Feb. 7.

Over the years, more than 5,000 people ranging in age from their early 20s until almost 100 have graduated from the Mini Medical series, which was created by UC Davis geriatrics specialist Dr. Michael McCloud in 2002.

Classes in the 2015 series include presentations on the anatomy of aging, nutrition, vision after age 50, heart health, preserving joint function and fitness in midlife.

The 2015 sessions will take place on the main university campus in Davis. The series is free, but registration is required. Only 520 places are available in class.
