Sometimes, the most interesting discussions occur over a beer or a glass of your favorite vino. (Bonus points if you can remember what was said the next morning!) That’s the concept behind Suds & Science, a monthly event that brings scientists face-to-face with the general public in a neighborhood bar. Each session kicks off with a short and enlightening presentation, after which the floor is open for discussion between the audience and the speaker. We cover a wide variety of topics that can range from the science of beer to superhero physics to the genius of genomes. We invite you to come sit back, sip your favorite beverage and participate in the discussion. Suds & Science puts the fun and spirit(s) back into learning.

LGBTQIAP2+: Welcoming Diversity

LGBTQIAP2+—a list of initials, numbers, and symbols that describes a vibrant community of individuals—keeps changing. The dynamic nature of the list, while potentially confusing, reflects the ongoing efforts of the community to both represent and welcome individuals with unique and evolving ways of defining themselves with regard to biological sex, gender identity, romantic attraction, sexuality, spirituality, and advocacy. Join us this month as Dr. Erin N. Castelloe facilitates a conversation focused on the LGBTQIAP2+ community. Dr. Castelloe invites attendees to share questions, experiences, and narratives that will nurture greater understanding and acceptance of diversity in our world.

Erin Nissen Castelloe, MD, California-licensed and American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM)-certified physician, independent pharmacovigilance consultant, and comprehensive sexuality educator, divides her professional time between clinical research and teaching. She collaborates with organizations that are developing medications for conditions with few or no treatment options and is currently focused on treatments for Alzheimer disease, achondroplasia, and Prader-Willi syndrome. In addition, she creates and delivers educational programs that empower individuals and communities, promote health and well-being, and nurture respectful communication and social justice. She warmly welcomes opportunities to network and can be reached through her web sites: www.erincastelloe.com and www.castelloe.org.

Date & Time: Monday, April 13 

TIME CHANGE 6–7 p.m.

Join us as again as we put a spotlight on two more artists and scientists who are part of the amazing San Diego Art Institute exhibition, Illumination: 21st Century Interactions with Art & Science & Technology.
