Researchers at the University of Calgary have created a new, interactive tool that will change the way medical education is taught. LINDSAY is a virtual human, named after Lindsay Kimmett, a bright, promising medical student who died in a car crash.
The University of Calgary is holding a media availability and photo op on Monday, July 16th at 10 am, to introduce LINDSAY, whose applications bridge the gap that often exists between real life and the textbook.
What: Demonstration of LINDSAY, virtual human.
When: Monday, July 16 at 10 am.
Where: Theatre 4, Health Sciences Centre, 3330 Hospital Dr NW, Calgary
Parking: Media can park in Lot 6.
