The latest research on hypertension will be explored at the Science Café—a speaker series at St. Ann Center for Intergenerational Care-Bucyrus Campus, 2450 W. North Ave. Sponsored by the Medical College of Wisconsin’s Clinical & Translational Science Institute, this kickoff program is scheduled for Tuesday, January 31, 5-6 p.m.

Nicole Lohr, MD, PhD, chief of cardiology at the Clement J. Zablocki VA Medical Center, will be the featured speaker. “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.

Presenters, including medical specialists from various local universities, will discuss the newest research on a variety of topics, selected based on a health interest survey of Bucyrus Campus visitors. Subjects will include diabetes, obesity, asthma, opioid abuse, PTSD, mental health, tobacco use prevention, prostate and breast cancers, kidney health and Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.

A large portion of the program will be devoted to questions from the audience. “That way, the researchers can learn from real people what their health concerns are,” Ghojallu says. Upcoming Science Café discussions will be held the last Tuesday of the month. Check St. Ann Center’s Facebook page at facebook.com/stanncenter for topics, or call 414-210-2430.
