Dr. Diaz inspires young learners with medical knowledge

Last Friday, November 13, Dr. Michael Diaz visited St. Patrick and spoke to Ms. Lawson’s Biology II classes.  Dr. Diaz is the medical director and radiologist at Memorial Hospital in Gulfport, MS.  He spoke to the students about the field of radiology, various diagnostic scans, and general medical careers.  Radiology is the science that deals with X-rays and other high-energy radiation especially in the diagnosis and treatment of disease.  Dr. Diaz presented the classes with tons of information about the topic and background stories of many historic professions such as Robert Koch.

Thank you to Dr. Michael Diaz for sharing your experience and knowledge of medical technology with our students!
