The latest in medical research is on the menu at the Science Café—a speaker series at St. Ann Center’s Bucyrus Campus. The programs are co-sponsored by St. Ann Center and the Medical College of Wisconsin’s Clinical & Translational Science Institute.
“The aim of these talks is to bring research from the laboratory to the people more quickly,” says Stephanie Ghojallu, co-director of the Bucyrus Medical Clinic. A study by the Medical College showed that it takes an average of 26 years for public health scholars to translate or disseminate research for use in the community where it’s likely to have a positive impact.
Presenters, including medical specialists from various local universities, will discuss the newest research on a variety of topics. Subjects, selected based on a health interest survey of Bucyrus Campus visitors, will include hypertension, diabetes, pediatric acute pain management, asthma, adult opioid use/abuse, stroke rehabilitation, suicide prevention, asthma & GERD, African American men’s health, depression and memory loss in the elderly, breast cancer, pediatric seizure/epilepsy, PTSD, nutrition/obesity and sickle cell disease.
A large portion of the program will be devoted to audience questions. “That way, the researchers can learn from real people what their health concerns are,” Stephanie says. Check St. Ann Center’s Facebook page at facebook.com/stanncenter for upcoming Science Café topics, or call 414-210-2430.
