Science Café 360 is a casual space for open dialogue between community members, medical researchers, and social scientists. Researchers demystify what they do, how they do it, and why they think it will help local residents. Community members - anyone from the casually interested to health activists, from citizen patients to street scholars - will probe, debate, and share ideas that come from living the experience.
Please join the Clinical Translational Science Institute-Children’s National (CTSI-CN) for Science Café 360, In Our District – Envisioning Comprehensive Education, Clinical Care, and Transformative Research for People Living with Autism; Wednesday, June 14, 2017 from 6pm – 8pm at Busboys and Poets, 625 Monroe St NE Washington DC 20017. The featured speakers are: Dr. Kevin Pelphrey, Director of the Autism and Neurodevelopmental Disorders Institute (ANDI) at George Washington University & Children's National Health System and parent of a daughter on the spectrum; Dr. Ashley Darcy-Mahoney, Director of Infant Research in ANDI and Assistant Professor in the School of Nursing at GW; Dr. Jennifer Frey, Director of the Early Childhood Research Program in ANDI and Assistant Professor in the Graduate School of Education and Human Development at GW; and Molly Whalen, Executive Director of the DC Association for Special Education and the parent of two children with autism.
