Medical breakthroughs talk Nov.5

What amazing medical breakthroughs, from imaging to genomic research, are on the horizon? Find out in “Medicine of the Future” Nov. 5 with Anthony J. Elam, Baylor College of Medicine’s Executive Director for Strategic Initiatives.

Elam’s responsibilities include strategy and plans for implementation of personalized genomic medicine in the future Baylor Hospital and Clinic. He works with the leading BCM researchers to integrate their latest science and technology into the future individualized patient treatment provide by BCM’s clinical departments.

Elam’s presentation is part of Lone Star College-CyFair’s Learning, Inspiration, Fellowship, and Enrichment (L.I.F.E.) program. L.I.F.E. workshops are free and held Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. in the library (Room 131 unless otherwise noted) at 9191 Barker Cypress.

Don’t miss this revealing program held in part to celebrate National Radiologic Technology Week Nov. 2 through Nov. 8.

In addition, check out the “Every Picture Tells a Story: Image is Everything” display in the library. Celebrating the anniversary of the x-ray’s discovery by Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen in 1895, the display not only will give a short history of the x-ray, but also will feature radiographs of nature by Steven N. Meyers, photographer and radiology technologist.
