Kirkby Scibar – March meeting

The next SciBar meeting will be on Tuesday 19th March from 7.00pm to 9.00pm at Holy Angels Social Club, Sydney Powell Avenue, L32 0TP in Westvale.

The talks are accessible and suitable for older primary school children and anyone above that – basically from 10 to 110!

This month’s topic is – Disasters and Public Health in our changing world with Rachael Reynolds – Lecturer in Geography, University of Chester

 As we leave 2018 behind, we take stock of the 281 climate and geophysical events which contributed to 60 million people and their health being affected. Further disruption is expected in 2019, with the onset of another El Nino event. In light of this, we must consider how do we in the UK and the international community assess, prepare and protect public health in the face of growing challenges from natural disasters.

SciBars are simply science in a bar or a Social Club. Every month we bring you a different scientist who leads a discussion about their research. Come and enjoy a drink and a lively scientific discussion at the Kirkby SciBar. You don’t need to know any science at all.
