Are you curious about scientific breakthroughs in medicine and what is happening (or might one day happen) to your body? There are eleven systems in the human body, all working in concert to keep us healthy and alive. But what happens if something goes wrong? What tools has science developed to fix things? Dr. Maia Larios, Chair of the Department of Biology at the University of St. Thomas, has a talent for explaining complex scientific concepts to people - even if you haven’t ever studied science before. Her detailed presentations are filled with information you can easily process, and her unique teaching style will have you fascinated with science!

This class will be held onsite at WIH and simulcast via Zoom.
