Feb. 7 Science Cafe to focus on history of sex medicine

A history of sex medicine is the topic of the next Science Café on Feb. 7 at 7 p.m. at the Slowdown, 729 N. 14th St. in Omaha. Attendees will hear from Lindsay Novak, a licensed mental health practitioner.

Novak has a bachelor’s degree in education from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with a double major in exercise science and women’s studies, and a master’s degree in counseling from the University of Nebraska at Omaha. She is one of three certified sex therapists and the only board certified sexologist in the state.

She is the author of the "Sex & Relationship blog" on Omaha's LiveWellNebraska.com. She has taught numerous undergraduate and graduate courses and lectured for both professional and community events.

This café is in partnership with the Blue Barn Theatre. At the end of the café, Amy Lane, a UNO instructor and guest director at the Blue Barn Theatre, will discuss the upcoming production, “In the Next Room.”
