They’re everywhere…all around you…on you…in you…no – we’re not being paranoid or conspiracy theorists – we’re talking about microorganisms (or microbes for short!)! And by microorganisms we mean critters like bacteria, viruses, yeasts – all the beasties that are microscopic (unable to be seen without extreme magnifying tools). Some microorganisms play roles in keeping you healthy (hi there Lactobacillus acidophilus!), some of them can lead to causing illness or diseases (looking at YOU Salmonella and influenza!).
At July’s meeting of The Ladder you’ll have the opportunity to learn all about bacteria, viruses and infectious diseases. You’ll learn about good microbes and not-so-good microbes, how microbes are studied, viewed and discovered, as well as what roles different microbes play in medicine and health.
So join us for the next opportunity of medical fun and learning on Saturday July 12th at 12:30pm at the UROC building (2001 Plymouth Ave N, Minneapolis) – lunch will be provided! The UROC building is reachable by Metro Transit bus routes 19, 32 & 7.
The Ladder is a Society of Medical Scholars ages 9 to 99. Meetings are every second Saturday of the month.
