The public is invited, and parking is available in the adjacent BellTower Parking deck. Dr. Lyon received his MD from Harvard Medical School in 2003 and completed residency training in Internal Medicine at Brigham and Women's Hospital in 2007. He is currently an Assistant Professor at the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine and a hospitalist in the Section of Hospital Medicine at the University of Chicago Medical Center.
