Medical Series at Morningside Community (Open to the Public)

Alternate Wednesday evenings • 7 p.m.-9 p.m. • Classes off campus at the Morningside Retirement Community, 800 Morningside Drive, Fullerton, CA 92835. 

A recent large study, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, proved that one of the most critical contributors to prolonging life is “medical literacy.” This indicates that populations with a poor understanding of their medical condition, its diagnosis and treatment, not only had a poorer quality of life but lived much shorter lives.

This series will contribute to your “medical literacy” and is co-sponsored along with OLLI by the Golden Hearts Group at St. Jude Medical Center and the Morningside Retirement Community.

Coordinators: Joseph Lawton, M.D. and Bill Lindstrom
