Next Science Café to discuss diabetes
Thomas University’s monthly Science Café series continues at 6:30 p.m. Jan. 27 with “Diabetes: Are We All at Risk? What Can Be Done?” The presenter will be Arthur Williams, chief scientific officer for DTI Laboratories, a national reference laboratory specializing in diabetes and related diagnostic evaluations.
Williams is considered an expert in the field of insulin algorithms, a method that enables a person with diabetes to adjust the amount of insulin injected based on his or her blood glucose level before a meal and the caloric value of that meal. He has been featured on America’s Health Network, the Fox Network, KNBC in Miami and WCTV in Tallahassee. Williams developed a video game for patients with Type 1 diabetes that was featured on more than 65 newscasts. He has written books and presented at medical conferences.
The Science Café is a forum for face-to-face conversations about current science topics and is held in the Flowers Foods Executive Classroom inside Smith-Bonvillian Hall on TU’s Main Campus. Science Café is presented by the Thomas University Division of Education and is open to learners of all ages.
Guests are welcome to come at 6 p.m. for a reception with Williams in the Smith-Bonvillian Hall lobby. There is no admission charge. For more information, contact April D. Penton at firstname.lastname@example.org.
