A Struggle Within

“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Scientific Proofs returns Tuesday May 29 at 6:30 p.m. to tackle one of our weightiest subjects to-date: drug addiction. For perspective, Dr. Sarah Moyer, director of the Louisville Metro Department of Public Health and Wellness and the Chief Health Strategist for the city of Louisville will provide an overview of Louisville’s substance use disorder epidemic and what’s being done to reverse the trends. For understanding, Peter W. Campbell with University of Louisville will present on the neurobiological mechanisms underlying drug addiction with a particular focus on results from rodent models of cocaine abuse.

As always, Scientific Proofs is a free event open to the public.
