FORT WAYNE, Ind.—These days, it is common knowledge that smoking is hazardous to your health. See exactly how in the May session of Lunch with a Scientist featuring Heather Krull, clinical assistant professor of nursing, and Carol Crosby, clinical assistant professor of nursing, both of Indiana University–Purdue University Fort Wayne (IPFW).
"What Happens from the Inside Out" is a hands-on presentation, and both Krull and Crosby will use a real pig's lung to show the tangible effects smoking has on the body. There will be additional activities following the presentation.
Lunch with an IPFW Scientist takes place Saturday, May 10, 2014, at Science Central, 1950 N. Clinton, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The program is open to the public at a cost of $16 per person; $10 for Science Central members. Lunch is included.
