SpeakEZ is proud to partner with Grand Valley State University and Science On Tap Grand Rapids to bring this recurring lecture and discussion series to our stage on the second Thursday of each month.  Come hear top experts in their fields present on a broad range of topics concerning the sciences and the world around us.  Raise your knowledge while raising a pint!

The discovery of antibiotics nearly a century ago transformed medicine. Infectious diseases that commonly killed became curable. Although lifesaving, antibiotics can also have undesirable effects and drug-resistant bacteria are threatening the improvements in life expectancy and health that have been provided by antibiotics.

Join us and Dr. Steven Triesenberg, an infectious disease specialist affiliated with Spectrum and Mercy, for a discussion of antibiotics -the good, the bad, the ugly.
