COLUMBIA, KY - A Southcentral Kentucky native, Dr. Jann Aaron, will hold a book-signing at Lindsey Wilson College to raise money for a Kentucky homeless shelter. Dr. Aaron's talk will be at 11amCT Thursday, February 11, 2010 in the Lindsey Wilson Roberta D. Cranmer Dining & Conference Center, 430 Helen Flatt DR., Columbia, KY.
Dr. Aaron will talk about her book, Open Heart: Returning Home to Practice Medicine, and she will also do a signing. All proceeds raised from sale of the book will be used to support The Healing Place.
Based in Louisville, KY, The Healing Place is a network of social services that offers men's and women's shelters for the homeless and also provides a network of social services for those addicted to drugs and alcohol.
Open Heart is a work of fiction based on numerous patients Aaron treated while practicing medicine in Southcentral Kentucky. The stories span Aaron's time from after her internship, when she practiced medicine in Appalachia briefly with her father-in-law, to the time six years later when she returned to Kentucky to practice medicine full-time.
"The stories are based on real people and real situations," said Aaron, who currently lives in Henry County, KY. "They are not meant to be factual. Rather, poetic license was liberally used at times to address a larger social issue. I changed the names, but all of the incidents in the book are based on truth"
A graduate of Campbellsville High School, Aaron earned a medical degree from the University of Louisville. She went on to a residency in diagnostic radiology at Yale University followed by a Harvard University fellowship in neuroradiology at Massachusetts General Hospital.
Dr. Aaron has been chair of the St. Anthony Medical Center Imaging Center in Louisville; she was chair of the University of Louisville School of Medicine Department of Radiology; and she was an adjunct associate professor of anatomical science and neurobiology at U of L.
Aaron is a senior member of the American Society of Neuroradiology and a member of the American College of Radiology. In addition to Open Heart, Aaron has been published extensively in professional literature, with books, articles and reviews.
Dr. Jann Aaron will speak about Open Heart: Returning Home to Practice Medicine at 11amCT, Thursday, February 11, 2010 in the Lindsey Wilson College Roberta D. Cranmer Dining & Conference Center, 430 Helen Flatt DR, Columbia, KY. For more information, contact the college at firstname.lastname@example.org or (270) 384-8400.
