The May NeuroScience Cafe is right around the corner and this month’s topic is Exercise is Regenerative Medicine: Impact on Parkinson’s Disease. Brought to you by UAB’s Comprehensive Neuroscience Center (CNC), the May cafe will be held at the Hoover Public Library (200 Municipal Drive, Hoover, AL 35216) Monday, May 21 at 6:30 PM and lead by Dr. Marcas Bamman from the Department of Neurology at UAB.

The overall goal of these cafés is to help educate the public on the latest clinical care and neuroscience-related research taking place at UAB.
