CHEYENNE, Wyoming, May 22, 2018 – Local neurologist Dr. Tim Allen, MD from Neurology Specialists of the Rockies (NSR) will appear at Boys & Girls Club of Cheyenne (BGCC) on Wednesday, May 23, 5:00pm – 6:00pm to discuss neurology, dissect a human brain and encourage careers in medicine.
“When kids see a real brain and can speak with a doctor in a down-to-earth manner, then the idea of a profession in medicine becomes a reality,” says Dr. Allen, who practices at NSR in Cheyenne.
Approximately 10-15 sixth and seventh-graders are expected to attend.
“If even one child’s interest is sparked to become a doctor after seeing my presentation at Boys & Girls Club, it’s a great thing for humanity, says Dr. Allen. “As an MD, they’ll impact thousands of lives.”
Dr. Allen will show samples of a male and female adult brain. He’ll discuss brain myths, neuroplasticity, the mental health/brain connection, and how to care for your brain.
His visit marks BGCC’s last CareerLaunch demonstration of the school year.
