Future Physicians Listen to Experts in
'Voyage & Discovery'

The Voyage & Discovery lecture series continues Tuesday, Feb. 20, with a talk by cardiac surgeon Vincent Gott at 8 p.m. in Mudd Hall Auditorium on the Homewood campus of the Johns Hopkins University, 3400 N. Charles St. in Baltimore.

By presenting the personal and professional journeys of world-renowned physicians and researchers, the student-organized lecture series is designed to inspire undergraduates who want to pursue careers in science and medicine.

Gott's lecture is titled "The Roles of Opportunity, Luck, and Serendipity in Scientific Discovery: A Cardiac Surgeon Looks Back and to the Future." Gott is a professor emeritus and former chief of cardiac surgery at Johns Hopkins.

The series continues at 8 p.m. the following Tuesday, Feb. 27, also in Mudd Hall Auditorium, with Thomas LaVeist, who will speak about "An Unlikely Route to Nirvana: My Journey to the Public's Health." LaVeist is a professor in the Bloomberg School of Public Health's Department of Health Policy and Management and director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Disparities Solutions.

Ben Carson, director of pediatric neurosurgery at the Johns Hopkins Children's Center, is currently the last scheduled speaker, with his talk at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 17, in Remsen 1. Organizers are hoping to add another speaker in the spring.

The lectures are free and open to the public. For information, e-mail voyage@jhu.edu.
