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.
