    The Gault Site and the Peopling of the Americas 

    The Gault Site, just 40 miles north of Austin, has evidence of human occupation 16,000-20,000 years ago. This was only one of the many surprises this site held and has tremendous implications for the peopling of the Americas.

    Boneheads & Brainiacs 

    The inventor of lobotomy won a Nobel Prize for destroying brains. Another Nobel laureate thought malaria cured syphilis, killing most of his experimental subjects. A pioneer of organ transplants was an ardent eugenicist, while the founder of sports physiology heroically spoke out against Nazism. In a highly entertaining book written for the ordinary reader, Boneheads & Brainiacs profiles winners of the Nobel Prize in Medicine ―a surprisingly diverse group of racists, cranks, and opportunists, as well as heroes and geniuses.

    About our speaker:

    Moira Dolan earned her MD degree at University of Illinois College of Medicine, and was one of the few in her class to refuse the offer of a free stethoscope from pharmaceutical giant Eli Lilly.  She champions Informed Consent (and Informed Refusal) and advocates patients’ rights through her blogs and books. Boneheads & Brainiacs encourages a healthy skepticism when it comes to the hallowed halls of medical science.
