Idiopathic Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus
November 9, 2020 @ 5:00 PM
Mark Johnson MD PhD, the Maroun Semaan Chair in Neurosurgery, and chair and professor of neurological surgery at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, will speak at Wheaton College, Monday November 9, 2020 at 5pm, via Zoom. According to a recent interview on the Voices of UMass Med podcast, Dr. Johnson, grew up in Memphis, Tenn., and his early thoughts of becoming a race car driver gave way to medicine. “When I was a kid, I dreamed of doing something really significant.” Now a world-renowned neurosurgeon, Dr. Johnson said “I often say to people I’m a scientist in a neurosurgeon’s body,” and he adds “There are very few things that we do that are routine, mundane and inconsequential.”
Dr. Johnson has been a great supporter of Wheaton’s students in the past, having spoken about medicine and his personal career path with students in the Pre-Health Society before. Join students in Wheaton’s Pre-Health Society and BIO 324 Neurobiology course to hear Dr. Johnson deliver a talk entitled “Idiopathic Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus”. There will be time for question-and-answer about Dr. Johnson’s science and career as well.
