Peninsula Community Library is partnering with Michigan Medicine (University of Michigan Hospital) on a series of health programs, and this week’s lecture featured Dr. Sami Malek, who spoke on blood cancers.

I was honored to be asked to video the program, which I’ve included below. As a side note, I’ve been thinking about investing in a video camera with better resolution, and after reviewing this one (done on my phone with not-great resolution), now might be the time!

As I ponder that idea, take a look at the video below. There was a good crowd of OMPers who asked great questions about this important topic.

Also, view the library’s July 25 lecture, “The Latest in Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias” with speaker Dr. Hank Paulson in the video below that.

The next lecture will be held on Monday, Oct. 3, at 3 p.m. – “Can You Hear Me? Progress in the Treatment of Hearing Disorders” with speaker Dr. Gabriel Corfas.


A NOTE FROM JANE: I started Old Mission Gazette in 2015 because I felt a calling to provide the Old Mission Peninsula community with local news. After decades of writing for newspapers and magazines like the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Family Circle and Ladies' Home Journal, I really just wanted to write about my own community where I grew up on a cherry farm and raised my own family. So I started my own newspaper.

Because Old Mission Gazette is a "Reader Supported Newspaper" -- meaning it exists because of your financial support -- I hope you'll consider tossing a few bucks our way if I mention your event, your business, your organization or your news item, or if you simply love reading about what's happening on the OMP. In a time when local news is becoming a thing of the past, supporting an independent community newspaper is more important now than ever.
