“Experience of a Volunteer Plastic Surgeon in the Developing World”

Tuesday, April 28, 2015, 7 p.m. Town Hall Auditorium


Frank Virnelli, M.D.

The Winchester Seniors Association and the Council on Aging are pleased to announce that this year’s Francis P. & Mary J. Brennan Lecture will be held on Tuesday, April 28, at 7:00 p.m. in the Auditorium of the Town Hall. Winchester resident, Frank Virnelli, M.D. will be the speaker.

Dr. Virnelli is a Massachusetts native. He graduated from Dartmouth College and Dartmouth Medical School, which was then a two-year school. He received his MD from the Harvard Medical School. After serving in the Navy, he completed plastic surgery training at Tulane and practiced plastic surgery in Winchester from 1971 until his retirement in 2013. He taught in the BU School of Medicine plastic surgery residency program for many years. He is past president of the New England Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons and is a member of the Advisory Board of the Center of Health Equity of the Giesel School of Medicine at Dartmouth. He participated in his first volunteer project in the developing world in 1978. He is scheduled to make his 28th trip in April.

We look forward to welcoming Frank Virnelli to the Brennan Lecture. Please join us for coffee at 6:30 p.m. and the Brennan Lecture at 7:00 p.m. This lecture will be held in the Town Hall Auditorium because of the Jenks Center renovations. Parking is still available in the Jenks Parking Lot. The public is welcome to attend this informative and thoughtful presentation.
