Lunch & Learn: Huntsville Air and Space

Instructor: T. Gary Wicks
Dates: Thursday, 20 October
Time: 11:45 AM – 1:00 PM (program begins at noon and ends by 1PM)
Location: Main Library Auditorium

T. Gary Wicks will present a program based on his book Huntsville Air and Space. The Air Age in Huntsville Alabama began a century ago with Will Quick’s design and construction of a Flying Machine, which he demonstrated in 1908 for patenting and manufacture. The Space Age began in Huntsville a half a century later with the Von Braun rocket team’s design and construction of the Redstone Jupiter C, which, in 1958, places the free world’s first satellite, Explorer I, into the Earth’s orbit. A decade later in 1969, the Huntsville team performed human kind’s greatest technological achievement of the century with its Saturn V rocket – manned landings on the moon.

Instructor: Amit Arora, M.D. Neurologist
Dates: Thursday, September 22 (program begins at noon and ends by 1PM)
Time:11:45 AM – 1:00 PM
Location: Main Library Auditorium

Madison and Huntsville are located in the center of what doctors call the "Stroke Belt." This includes most of the Southeast, and people raised in this area have a much higher risk of stroke than anywhere else in the country. Because area residents are more likely to have a stroke, it is important for everyone to recognize stroke symptoms in themselves or a loved one. When it comes to stroke, seconds count! Thirty-two thousand brain cells die every second a stroke goes untreated. Fast, effective treatment is crucial to get the best possible outcome for a patient experiencing a stroke.
