Cheney, WA 99004
The Daniel & Margaret Carper Foundation International Speaker Series
Eastern Washington University and the Daniel and Margaret Carper Foundation present
Thursday, April 24, 2014, at the Martin Woldson Theater at the Fox
Making a rare appearance in Spokane, Dr. Sapolsky shared his intriguing experiences and research on human stress.
As a boy in New York City, Dr. Robert Sapolsky dreamed of living inside the African dioramas in the Museum of Natural History. By the age of twenty-one, he made it to Africa and joined a troop of baboons. He chose to live with the baboons because they are perfect for learning about stress and stress-related diseases in humans.
Dr. Sapolsky is a MacArthur "Genius" Fellow, a professor of biology and neurology at Stanford University, and a research associate with the Institute of Primate Research at the National Museum of Kenya. In 2008, National Geographic & PBS aired an hour-long special on stress featuring Dr. Sapolsky and his research on the subject. In addition to Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers, Sapolsky has written three other books, including The Trouble with Testosterone, A Primate's Memoir, and Monkeyluv and Other Essays on our Lives as Animals.
Through a video recording, we are pleased to provide you this fantastic presentation.
