Television Show Developed by Medical Students Premieres

April 26, 2007

The premiere of Strong Stories, a new television show developed by University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry students and supervised by faculty, will be held Tuesday May 1 in the Class of 1962 Auditorium in the Kornberg Medical Research Building.

Strong Stories will be shown from 5:15 p.m. to 6:15 p.m.

Anthony Petraglia, a fourth-year medical student, started Strong Stories with the help and professional television production assistance of WXXI, the Public Broadcasting Service station in Rochester. It showcases stories of real patients at Strong Memorial Hospital and aims to educate the community about important health issues. The initial show is on traumatic brain injury.

Strong Stories could become a television series. Students and faculty interested in participating in the project should attend the premier.

Strong Stories is presented by the University of Rochester Medical Center School of Medicine and Dentistry's Department of Community and Preventive Medicine, the School’s Center for Advocacy, Community Health, Education and Diversity (CACHED) and WXXI.
