Join us on Monday, June 25 at 7:00pm for:
Spinach on the Side: E. coli in Our Lives
with Jay Mellies, Associate Professor of Biology at Reed College http://academic.reed.edu/biology/professors/jmellies/
Though we enjoy one of the safest food supplies in the world, occasional outbreaks of infectious disease associated with eating are inevitable. Join us for a discussion of current research on E. coli O157 disease spread by fresh produce, why these outbreaks occur, and how our own personal food handling and purchasing habits can help minimize contact with infectious agents.
When: Monday, June 25
Presentation begins at 7:00pm and will last around 1.5 to 2 hours.
We have had very large, standing-room only crowds at the past few Science Pubs, so please come early if you want to have a seat. It is first come, first served, and we unfortunately can't reserve tables.
Where: bridgeport brewpub + bakery, 1313 NW Marshall, Portland, OR http://www.bridgeportbrew.com/
The Science Pub is held every last Monday of the month and is open to anyone and everyone. No RSVP is necessary. Please feel free to pass this on to your friends and colleagues, and we hope to see you there!
