Come hear me speak!

I gave two versions of my talk today to school groups, but if you want to come out, here's the deal. And not that all the below info doesn't have the real contact info on the web, but just not to advertise personal info too much, that junk has been removed.

In recognition of American Diabetes Month, graduate student researchers will engage the public in understanding the causes and consequences of diabetes, specifically diabetic blindness and heart disease.
