Mobile Medical Museum 2015 Lecture Series Starts Feb. 5

The first lecture of the Mobile Medical Museum's 2015 Lecture Series will take place Feb. 5, 2015, at 7 p.m. at the University of South Alabama Archaeology Museum.

Dr. Jeffrey Jones, a neurologist in private practice in Battle Creek, Mich., will present "Fits & Lit: Epilepsy and Great Literature." His lecture will highlight the change in perception of epilepsy as reflected in classic literature from early times when seizures were considered evil or the visitation of the Devil, to the modern day concept of "abnormal electrical discharges of the brain."

Dr. Jones grew up in West Virginia, where he earned his undergraduate degree in chemical engineering at West Virginia University (WVU). He served as a 1st Lt. in the U.S. Army and after returning from Vietnam, he went back to WVU where he earned his medical degree. After completing an internship in Newport News and a residency in neurology in Charleston, he moved to Battle Creek, Mich., where he has been in private practice for more than 34 years.

This event is co-sponsored by the USA chapter of Alpha Epsilon Delta, a national honor society for students preparing for careers in the graduate health professions, and hosted by the USA Archaeology Museum. Light refreshments will be served following the lecture. For more information, contact the Mobile Medical Museum at (251) 415-1109.
