Mar Vista Workshop: The Most Curious Case of the Made-Up Medical Mystery
February 17 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
A-choo! You’re sick, but it’s not the common cold. Your symptoms include sprouting a pair of wings, sleeping only during the day, and breaking out in a rash of sparkles. How do scientists handle medical mysteries? In this workshop, students will dive into the wacky side of medical history, learning about mystery illnesses and inventing made-up diseases of their own.
This workshop will be taught by Sarah Brandon. Sarah Brandon was born in Los Angeles and is thrilled to be back after several chilly years living on the East Coast and in the Midwest. She writes about health research and loves a good nature documentary.
