    Speaker Series - From the Bench to the Bedside - Community Connection - Nutrition at 11:00 AM

    Health and Wellness: From the Bench to the Bedside – Community Connection - Nutrition

    Local biomedical researchers describe their studies and how they are working to improve nutrition with residents of Cleveland area communities. This three-part series engages students (Grades 7-12) in conversations with medical professionals who will explain the science behind research in the community focusing on diabetes, obesity, and cardiovascular disease. Local medical researchers and experts from top medical institutions (Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, Cleveland Clinic, Metrohealth Medical Center, University Hospitals at Case Medical Center, and Louis Stokes VA Medical Center) will describe how their research directly impacts patient health in the community. A Science Education Partnership Award from the National Institutes of Health funds this the BMT: STEM distance learning programs.

    Free program with paid admission to Great Lakes Science Center. Advance reservations are required for school groups. Please call 216-621-2400 (M-F, 9 AM to 5:30 PM) and ask your reservationist for times and details.
