LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The Texas Tech Health Science Center will begin its third year of Community Medical School next week and all ages are invited to attend. Community Medical School will help make citizens more knowledgeable about their bodies and more prepared to ask their doctors questions.

Rial Rolfe, M.D., and the Senior Vice President of Academic Affairs at TTUHSC says, "It really gives the community a taste of medical school. Of course our lectures are at a level that everybody can understand.  The topics are great, influenza, tattooing, body piercing, right brain, left brain, we've got a neurologist that'll talk about that, so the topics are very exciting."

Community Medical School will begin on Tuesday, September 8th, registration will be from 5:30-6:30 p.m., with a lecture at 7 p.m. Classes will be held every Tuesday evening for the next six weeks and tuition is $20 for the entire semester.  Topics this semester range from oral health to the truth about swine flu.
