menopause and liver disease. Lectures will take place from 6-8 p.m.

Mini Medical School is free to UB students. UB faculty and
staff, and members of the public may attend one evening at a cost
of $5, or $15 for all four sessions.
“UB started the Mini Medical School in 1997 as a public

because we want to provide the public and people interested in
careers in medicine with a fun, casual and informative introduction
