The UC-San Francisco Osher Center for Integrative Medicine  offers a “Mini Medical School for the Public” on a variety of topics.
They’ll offer a course on “The Medicine of Cycling” beginning on Thursday, February 28 2013.
This course, led by a multidisciplinary team of experts and cyclists in fields of neurology, psychology, urology, dermatology, nutrition, bike fit, and sports medicine, will cover a wide range of topics which affect cyclists. It should be an interesting discussion at all of these classes — I wish I could attend!
