Article

batten_msc01.JPGThe University of South Alabama Med School Café lectures are now aired on the Mobile County Public School System (MCPSS) channel. They are broadcasted to the entire school system and on certain channels in the Mobile area.  The main focus of this channel is to reach the community with news, events and information that happens within the Mobile County Public School System.

“Our goal is to seek out programming that educates our parents and students,” said David Akridge, executive manager of information technology for MCPSS. “Med School Café is a wonderful program that has a wealth of information and is useful for members of our community.”

“Educational opportunities such as Med School Café empower each of us to live healthier lives,” said Becky S. Tate, CEO with USA Physicians Group. “Our physicians are excited about this new relationship with our school system that enables us to share valuable information with a larger audience.”

Akridge said airing the Med School Café lectures on the MCPSS channel will also give students the opportunity to learn more about the medical profession. In addition, the lecture will provide parents with specific information on the latest health related issues.

The lectures currently air an episode Monday through Friday at 1 p.m. and 8 p.m., showing a new talk each week. The lectures can also be found online at the MCPSS website, www.mcpss.com, and on Comcast (channel 15), AT&T Uverse On-Demand (channel 99) and they will be showing on Mediacom in the next month. “We are excited about this partnership and hope to expand these opportunities in the future,” said Akridge.

Med School Café is a free community lecture series sponsored by the USA Physicians Group. Each month, faculty from the USA College of Medicine share their expertise on a specific medical condition, providing insight on the latest treatment available. The Med School Café lecture and lunch are provided free of charge, but reservations are required. For more information or to make reservations, call (251) 460-7770.
