Drugs in our water? And the loss of a scientist of ‘great warmth and integrity’

As the late, great Lou Reed so painfully put it, “There’s a bit of magic in everything, and then some loss to even things out.” Dan Herms of CFAES’s Department of Entomology shares the following about a coming event:

“The next Wooster Science Café at the First Amendment Public House (150 W. Liberty St., Wooster) will be Thursday, Feb. 26, at 7 p.m. Kristina Schiavone from the College of Wooster will lead a discussion about personal pharmaceuticals in the environment. Kristina is a student who was advised by Dr. Melissa Schultz, who was scheduled to speak until she tragically passed away on Feb. 7. Kristina carries on the work of Dr. Schultz [2009 EarthSky interview with Schultz here].

“Science Cafés are grassroots events that have sprung up all over the world, bringing together scientists and nonscientists in casual settings for lively, engaging conversation on scientific topics of interest. A brief presentation will be followed by discussion. We hope to see you there.”

CFAES’s research arm, OARDC, is a co-sponsor of the series. It’s free. All are welcome. “Come out and support Kristina as she carries on Melissa’s work,” says a post on the Wooster Science Café Facebook page.
