Peninsula Community Library has partnered with Michigan Medicine on a series of health lectures in recent months. On October 3, the program was “Can You Hear Me? Progress in the Treatment of Hearing Disorders,” presented by Gabriel Corfas, Ph.D. I’ve included the video below.

The lectures have been very well attended, and we’ve been so fortunate to have physicians from Michigan Medicine offer timely information on what’s happening with various health issues. Thanks to the crew at Peninsula Community Library for making it happen.

The video below on Hearing Disorders is my first with my new video camera (a Canon Vixia HF G50). I’m still figuring out how it all works – lighting, resolution, zooming in and out, etc. – but I think the quality is definitely better than the iPhone video I did of the blood cancers lecture.

I also need a taller tripod, so I can be in the back of the room and shoot the video over the top of the audience. And at some point, I’ll figure out how to “brand” the videos with Old Mission Gazette info, subtitles, etc. If any of you have a favorite video editing program, let me know via [email protected] or by leaving a comment in the comments section at the bottom of this story. A learning process!

A lifelong resident of the Old Mission Peninsula, Jane grew up on a cherry farm (Johnson Farms), married the boy next door (Tim Boursaw), and raised two kids there (Will and Marissa). Her 35-year career as a photojournalist includes bylines with the New York Times and Ladies' Home Journal, and interviews with Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts. But she loves writing about the OMP most of all.


  1. Many thanks, Jane, for videoing the last two Michigan Medicine programs at Peninsula Community Library. Great job! We are so grateful, as are those who were unable to attend the live programs. We are working with Michigan Medicine on programming for next year!
