Birmingham SCI Cafe is a monthly series in which the general public has a chance to interact with researchers and enthusiasts from diverse science fields. This event features enlightening presentations, lively discussions and a bit of science trivia. Join us every third Tuesday of each month at John’s City Diner in downtown Birmingham.
This month’s topic is “A New Year’s Resolution: Sifting Fact from Myth.” Many people set a weight loss goal as a New’s Years Resolution, but is the weight loss advice they follow true? We will discuss the reliability of health information and discuss whether popular weight loss claims are fact or myth.
