Presidential Lecture Series with Dr. Alfredo Quiñones-Hinojosa
April 7 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Dr. Alfredo Quiñones-Hinojosa — just call him Dr. Q — was an impoverished teenager living in a rural Mexican village before he hopped an 18-foot fence into California and worked his way to becoming a medical student at Harvard. He is now regarded as one of the world’s finest surgeons, operating on some 250 people with brain tumors every year and leading cutting-edge research to cure brain cancer. Dr. Q is now the neurosurgery chair at the Mayo Clinic in Florida. He has appeared on television in the award-winning ABC series Hopkins as well as on NOVA, CBS News with Katie Couric and NBC’s The Today Show. Quiñones-Hinojosa’s best-selling autobiography is the inspiration for Dr. Q, a film being produced by Brad Pitt’s production company, Plan B, in collaboration with Disney.
