The Sexperts are back!

Two of Omaha's leading sex researchers will make a return engagement at the next Science Cafe at 7 p.m., April 1, at the Slowdown, 729 N. 14th St. They will discuss sexually transmitted infections, HIV and safe sex.

Presenters will include: Christopher Fisher, Ph.D., director of the Midlands Sexual Health Research Collaborative, and Jason Coleman, Ph.D., associate director of MSHRC. For more information about the MSHRC visit the website at: http://www.unmc.edu/publichealth/mshrc.

This will be the second of a four-part series of Science Cafe presentations dealing with sexual health topics. Drs. Fisher and Coleman opened the series in December when they presented on the MSHRC.

Science Cafe is a free educational event sponsored by UNMC and other groups to increase the population's science literacy. Hosted by UNMC, Bio Nebraska and the Nebraska Coalition for Lifesaving Cures, Science Cafes are held the first Tuesday of each month in Omaha and one Thursday every other month in Lincoln. They are open to everyone 21 and older.

Free pizza, available for the first 50 people, will be provided by the Nebraska Coalition for Lifesaving Cures. For more information about Science Cafes, go to www.unmc.edu/sciencecafe.
