Learn about Honey Bees & Human Health this Tuesday night

by shanai on Apr. 19th, 2009

Since everyone seems to be buzzing with talk about bees, I thought it would be a good time to mention that bee expert Marla Spivak from the University of Minnesota will be giving a talk on Honey Bees & Human Health at Cafe Scientifique this Tuesday night. In 2005 Marla answered all sorts of questions as a Scientist on the Spot for Science Buzz. Since then she has continued to research Honey Bees in an effort to find out more about how we can help keep them healthy. After all, our own health depends on it! Marla is also part of a research team that is exploring the potential of a bee made substance called propolis to help fight HIV in humans. If you are in the Twin Cities and want to ask Marla a question in person, you should come out on Tuesday night!
