Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine presents the 2019 Mini Medical School with the three-part series titled "Genes, Environment, and Choices" and the final part on Tuesday, February 12, 2019.

What’s the connection between genetics and a bowl of chili? That question will be answered by way of a hands-on exercise at the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine’s Mini Medical School. The free three-part series, titled “Genes, Environment, and Choices,” will be held January 29 and February 5 and 12 at the school.

Part Three will feature faculty members from the Fralin Biomedical Research Institute at Virginia Tech Carilion who will discuss some of the world-recognized research on human health being done at the institute. They will also shed light on research trials underway at the institute and how members of the public can become involved.

Each evening of the Mini Medical School will run from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. and include both talks and interactive activities. The series will conclude with a celebration and the awarding of certificates.

Spaces are limited. To reserve your spot, contact Courtney Powell at or 540-526-2588.

The Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine is located at 2 Riverside Circle in Roanoke, VA.
