"MODERN PLAGUES: PIGS, BIRDS, AND PEOPLE"
with Dr. Daniel Johnson, Associate Professor of Pediatrics, University of Chicago Medical Center

This is a SCIENCE CAFE EVANSTON event.

EAT, DRINK, AND TALK SCIENCE WITH NORTHWESTERN UNIVERSITY PROFESSORS AND OTHER SCIENTISTS!

The President?s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology issued a grim report predicting large numbers of deaths and hospitalizations for the second wave of swine flu this fall. The Director of the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases doesn?t ?necessarily see this as a likely scenario.? Some people think the flu is over, others think a hardy dose of reality about this threat is important. Whom and what do you believe?

Come hear Dr. Johnson talk about infectious diseases ?our modern plagues.

Science Cafe Evanston is focused on the adult-level audience and its purpose is to make science more accessible and accountable by featuring speakers whose expertise spans the sciences and who can talk in plain English.

Free and open to the public. Arrive early for a good seat!

See "Message Board" for more information and the schedule of Science Cafe Evanston.
