We’ll also learn about “Music in the Brain”. Lunch will be provided. Please RSVP to Grace Amborski, Music Administrator, at, so we know how many lunches to provide.

Mark your calendars now for January 31 and look for more details as the workshop draws nearer.

The Health of Two Cities: Paradoxical Risks for
Poor and Prosperous Houstonianscaduceus
Sunday, February 22, 1:30 p.m.

Dr. Winifred Hamilton of Baylor College of Medicine's Environmental Health Service will give the annual Priestley Lecture at First Unitarian Universalist Church of Houston on Sunday, February 22 beginning at 1:30 p.m. This free public lecture continues an eight-year tradition of wintertime science explorations, from buckyballs and nanotechnology to neuroscience and the law.

Dr. Hamilton will speak on the puzzles of environmental health, often unexplainable by physical or chemical factors alone. For example, Hispanics have paradoxically good health, in many ways as good or better than other ethnic groups, despite having on average lower income and living standards. How much of their flourishing in adversity comes from simpler diets, or closer family ties? Both research and clinical practice show a major role for our social environment in bodily and mental health.

The talk will be followed by a Q&A session, then by a reception with light refreshments. Click here for more information.
