Learning is a lifetime process, not something that ends with graduation. The UI Alumni Association, along with various partners across campus, is committed to providing enrichment through Lifelong Learning programs. Each year, at events held in cities across Iowa, UI faculty and staff share their knowledge and experience with alumni and friends of the university. Topics range from health issues and current events to career development.
To ensure that you receive invitations to Lifelong Learning events in your area, please update your record at www.iowalum.com/update.
The Pelvis: Gross Anatomy, Medicine, and Life in 3-D
Tuesday, March 11, 2014
Carnegie-Stout Public Library
360 W. 11th Street
Dubuque, Iowa (Map)
The pelvis surrounds an intricate three-dimensional arrangement of structures from many organ systems in the human body—such that even the healthiest of people have likely experienced some kind of pelvic pain or problems requiring medical intervention. With its important role in reproduction and the beginning of human life, the pelvis bears particular clinical and social significance.
Darren Hoffmann, 06PhD, a UI Carver College of Medicine lecturer and vice chair of educational programs in anatomy and cell biology, will lead an exclusive discussion on the pelvis's construction, featuring a virtual 3-D anatomy program that he helped create and that's used by medical students here and around the world. Come enjoy this interactive discussion and learn about one of the most complex anatomical structures.
Due to unforeseen issues, this event has been cancelled.
Please check back soon to see future Lifelong Learning events.
