Attention, Nutmeggers! I hope you can come join me on Thursday, 12/16, when I'll be giving a lecture at the Yale Medical School, as part of a series hosted by the Yale Medical Humanities and the Arts Council. I'll be talking about some of the eye-popping studies that have come out over the past couple years on the Neanderthals, our enigmatic extinct cousins (and grandparents, in some cases). It might seem an odd fit to talk about Neanderthals at a medical school, but when you consider the medically important genes that Neanderthals carried, suddenly it starts to make sense. When: Thursday, December 16, 2010 5:00 PM Where: Sterling Hall of Medicine (SHM), Beaumont Room. 333 Cedar St., New Haven, CT 06510 (Map) (Location is wheelchair accessible) Free and open to the public Contact Information: Deborah Finger 203-785-6102 firstname.lastname@example.org More details here.
