The first presentation in the Casady School “Medicine with the Experts” Science Lecture Series began at 7 p.m. on Tues., Oct. 4, in the Middle Division Community Room on the Casady campus. Dr. David Lee Gordon expounded on neurological diseases. I found every aspect interesting and his presentation style engaging. His explanation of what is a migrane was fascinating. Dr. Gordon joined the Department of Neurology at the OUHSC as professor and chairman in January 2007. He founded and directed the Acute Stroke Unit at the University of Mississippi Medical Center from 1991-1999. He has also received the American Heart Association’s Award of Meritorious Achievement in 2000.
Other medical professionals a part of the lecture series include Physical Therapist Rene’ Daman, who will speak on autism on Dec. 5; Dr. Robert Mannel will share a presentation on cancer on Feb. 6, 2012; Dr. Joseph Waner will talk about viruses and viral diseases on April 10, 2012; and Dr. Mark Anderson will close the series on May 1, 2012, with a discussion on keeping athletes injury free.
