November is – among MANY other things – Diabetes Awareness Month. Accordingly, the Science Students’Association is collaborating with the uOttawa Team Diabetes for our second Speaker Series event of the year.
WHERE: LMX 121
WHEN: Tuesday November 19 at 7pm
WHAT: Two 20 minute presentations (plus Q&A) by a professor of the School of Psychology and by a researcher from CHEO who both do research related to diabetes.
WHO:Dr. Claude Messier (who does research on how memory and cognition are affected by glucose, insulin and diabetes), and Dr. Alex Mackenzie (CHEO; his research is about the molecular genetics of pediatric disease)
HOW MUCH: This is a FREE event, open to all!
WHY: Why not? It should be interesting – plus, it will definitely finish early enough to go to 1848 for Toonies’ after. AND there will be a door prize raffle for all those who attend!
