Lifelong learning makes for many careers

By From page B3 | November 18, 2013

 Folsom Lake College presents “Science, Cars and Medicine — A Noble Career,” a talk by Dr. Ted Christy, MD, on Wednesday, Nov. 20.

Back by popular demand, Christy, a retired physician, will talk about the circuitous route that lead him from an interest in physics to fixing cars on the streets of Berkeley and finally a career in medicine.

He will share some of the lessons he learned along the way and how a love of lifelong learning fueled his journey.

He will also give his appraisal of the current state of medicine in the U.S. and include a discussion of the biggest change in federal support programs since Medicare, the Affordable Care Act, aka “ObamaCare.”

The event is hosted by biology professor Mike Denega and the El Dorado County Career Technical Partnership SB70 Sustainability Team.

It takes place from 7-9 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov.20 at the Folsom Lake College Main Campus, 10 College Parkway in Folsom, in the Buckeye Hall, Room FL3-173.

Admission is free.

Don’t miss this incredible opportunity to learn about the evolution of medical care in this country via the life experiences of Christy during his extraordinary career as a medical doctor.
