The Sexperts talk about sexuality at July 8 Omaha Science Cafe

Sexuality, anatomy and gender are the focus of the next Omaha Science Café at 7 p.m. July 8 at the Slowdown, 729 N. 14th St.

Presenters include: Sofia Jawed-Wessel, Ph.D., assistant director of the Midlands Sexual Health Research Collaborative, and Jay Irwin, Ph.D., associate director of the MSHRC. For more information about the MSHRC visit the website at: http://www.unmc.edu/publichealth/mshrc.

This is the third of a four-part series of Science Café presentations dealing with sexual health topics.

Science Cafés involve a face-to-face conversation with a scientist about current science topics. They are open to everyone (21 and older), and take place in casual settings like pubs and coffeehouses. Each meeting is organized around an interesting topic of conversation. A scientist gives a brief presentation followed by a question and answer period.

Pizza will be provided by The Nebraska Coalition for Lifesaving Cures for the first 50 people. For more information about Science Cafes, go to www.unmc.edu/sciencecafe. The presentations are now available on podcast at the Science Café website or available for download on iTunes at: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/omaha-science-cafe/id888430808
