Science on Tap: Why Is Labor So Laborious?: Evolutionary Medicine and Human Birth

November 9, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Science on Tap is an opportunity for conversation, debate and interaction between scientists and the public while drinking beer. Each month at SpeakEZ Lounge, a knowledgeable expert hosts a discussion about scientific current topics such as cutting edge cancer detection techniques, climate change and brewing beer.

This is a great chance to exercise your academic interests in a casual setting while enjoying great food and adult beverages!

This month: For most mammals, conceiving and giving birth are relatively easy, whereas in humans, birth is quite difficult. Come hear Dr. Lissa Tallman discuss the evolution of modern humans and the hypotheses for why birth is so much more difficult for us than our closest relatives.
