Want insights into your insides? The Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine is launching its new Mini Medical School series with Anatomy for Artists and Other Curious Sorts, a four-part event that will give community members a glimpse into medical education. Each evening will begin with a lecture on such topics as your brain on art and an owner’s manual to the body, to be followed by a range of hands-on activities. As an added feature, those with an artistic flair will have an opportunity to translate what they learn into art. No artistic ability is necessary, though—the only prerequisites are a curious mind and a willing spirit. To register, visit tinyurl.com/anatomyart.
March 11, March 18, March 25, and April 1, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
$20 for four evenings
