MWOW Presentation on Making Medical Diagnoses
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Dr. Wong will present “The Art and Science of Making a Diagnosis,” at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 22, at the Chico Area Recreation District (CARD) building, 545 Vallombrosa Ave., in Chico. A donation of $3 per adult is requested. Students with an ID are free. The programs are intended to be enjoyed by a general audience.
Despite many revolutionary breakthroughs in understanding disease processes and technological advances such as being able to interpret an individual’s genetic code, the best tools available to the pathologist are still a light microscope and training.
Dr. Wong will review basic information about cells and their role in disease, and will show how a pathologist uses all the resources available to make a diagnosis.
This presentation is part of the on-going MWOW series with the theme of “Medical Mysteries Revealed.” Other programs in the series are offered each Wednesday evening in October. For additional information about this and other museum programs, visit the museum’s Web page at www.ncnhm.org
