President Todd Goes to UK "Mini-Med School"

Many of the folks I work with these days look at me with a blank face when I talk about the movie "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington." Granted, it did come out even before I was born but I always think of it when I take the direct flight to DC for UK. Last week, I thought of that movie (and hence the heading for this blog) when President Lee Todd, First Lady Patricia Todd, UK Board of Trustee members and several other VIPs attended UK College of Medicine's Mini Medical School Class of 2010 - Spring.

This is the second mini-med school and again the feedback was excellent!
