View PosterWhy Zebras Don't Get Ulcers:
An evening with Dr. Robert Sapolsky

  • Free Admission - Thursday, April 24, 2014, 7 p.m.
  • The Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox, Spokane, Wash.
  • A book signing in the lobby of the theater will follow the event.

Join us as Dr. Sapolsky makes a rare appearance in Spokane to share 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.
