Biomechanics and how it is used to improve clinical practice is the focus of the next Omaha Science Café at 7 p.m. Aug. 12 at the Slowdown, 729 N. 14th St.
Sara A. Myers, Ph.D., an assistant professor in the School of Health, Physical Education, and Recreation and assistant director of the Biomechanics Research Building at the University of Nebraska at Omaha, is the featured speaker.
The mission of the Biomechanics Research Building is to provide a new understanding of the dynamic aspects of human movement via multidisciplinary approaches.
Dr. Myers’ research focuses on improving quality of life in individuals with various movement disorders, such as older individuals and those with peripheral arterial disease.
Science Cafés involve a face-to-face conversation with a scientist about current science topics. They are open to everyone (21 and older). Each meeting is organized around an interesting topic of conversation. A scientist gives a brief presentation followed by a question and answer period.
Pizza will be provided by The Nebraska Coalition for Lifesaving Cures for the first 50 people.
