They’re everywhere…all around you…on you…in you…we’re talking about microorganisms! We mean critters like bacteria, viruses, some parasites – 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!), while some of them can lead to illness or diseases (looking at YOU Salmonella and influenza!).
At January’s meeting of The Ladder you’ll have the opportunity to learn all about infectious disease and parasites. 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 January 9th 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.
