SCI Café is a community driven, informal discussion of science and health-related topics among community members, researchers and scientists. The goal of SCI Café is to engage community members with science and science with the local community. Beginning this fall, SCI Cafés will be held in MOD’s Community Room. The monthly SCI Cafés will begin with a brief, informal presentation followed by small group discussions guided by questions of participants.
Topics for SCI Cafés will be driven by community learning interests and selected by community feedback, current events/hot topics, and findings from UTMB faculty. To get some ideas before they start though, they’re asking the public to take a few minutes to complete SCI Café’s short on-line survey to tell them what you would most like to learn about and discuss at a SCI Café. Your feedback will be used to select topics to ensure information presented is relevant and important to the Galveston community!
These meetings are put on by our good friends over at MOD Coffeehouse along with UTMB’s Center in Environmental Toxicology, Sealy Center for Environmental Health & Medicine & the Institute for Translational Sciences. If you’ve got questions, give Lauren Scott, MSW, Director, Educational Outreach, CET Community Outreach & Engagement Core (and one of IBC’s founding members!) a email or call at 409-772-9110. We can’t wait to see how it turns out this fall and will keep the schedule up on our upcoming events as it gets closer.
