Medical professionals and students switch hats for music - KCBD NewsChannel 11 Lubbock

Medical professionals and students switch hats for musical concert

Dr. Laszlo Nagy was one of the many featured performers tonight at Hemmle Hall.  But this is not his day job.  Dr. Nagy is a pediatric neurosurgeon at the Texas Tech Health Sciences Center. His buddy on the piano was Dr. Jim Gutheil, a pediatric orthopedic surgeon.  But tonight, they entertained a packed crowd at Texas Tech's Hemmle Hall.  In all, 16 medical students and faculty traded their medical books for music…in an effort to raise money for a good cause. The evening was called "Play it Forward."  It was a free event with donations given at the door.  Before the event even started, these medical musicians had raised more than $6,000.  That money will go to CASA and to the Lubbock Free Clinic, which is run by medical students.
