Post Written By Alyson Kraft
In today’s diverse and advancing society, expansive communication and collaboration are essential contributory factors that aid in the health of the community. Consisting of roughly 108,000 residents, Rochester, MN is a prime example of how communities big or small, can come together to exchange ideas and promote change. As an illustration, collaboration is chief constituent of the new bioscience event in Rochester, Science Café. Established by BioAM, Science Café began with the aspiration of bringing those who share a passion for life science together for a round-table discussion; igniting new ideas and creating collaborations with professionals in various areas in the field of life science.
On September 17th, BioAm kicked off their first session of Science Café at Café Steam and welcomed Daniel DeSimone M.D. as the speaker for the evening’s event. Dr. DeSimone is an infectious disease fellow at the Mayo Clinic and has made his contribution to medicine through numerous research studies and clinical care.
Seventeen attendees of various backgrounds made their presence at Science Café’s kick-off event and swayed the conversation toward antibiotic resistance and its contribution to hospital acquired diseases, and homeopathy.
Science Cafe is open to the public and is designed to serve as a public forum giving anyone in the Rochester area the chance to interact with influential people in the world of life science, medicine, and technology.
