San Francisco, Calif. (January 29, 2013) -- There’s a great opportunity coming up for cyclists in the San Francisco Bay Area! The Medicine of Cycling Group’s UCSF Osher Mini Medical School for the Public in Cycling Medicine begins next month.
Open to the entire cycling community, this six week course will be led by experts and cyclists in the fields of neurology, psychology, urology, dermatology, nutrition, bike fit, and sports medicine. It will cover a wide range of topics which affect every cyclist.
The course takes place on Thursday evenings, Feb. 28 – April 4, from 7:00 to 8:45 PM on the new UCSF Mission Bay Campus in San Francisco.
More details and registration information can be found here.
The course is chaired by Dr. Anna Abramson, Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine and by Dr. Kristin Wingfield, CCFP, Diploma Sports Medicine.

"Kristin and I are both committed to improving health awareness even among some of the most health conscious members of our community,” explained Medicine of Cycling Group founder, Dr. Anna Abramson. “Cycling is great for overall lifestyle and conditioning, but cyclists are still people and have many physical and mental health needs that may require a great understanding of both medicine and sport.  We hope that by educating athletes on their own needs, they will be more responsive to managing health concerns before they become problems."
