Join The Health Museum and fellow Houston museum aficionados for Cocktails & Conversations! Have you ever wanted to discover more about the interconnectedness of human, animal, and environmental health in both an ancient and modern world? At this event, guests will have the unique opportunity to do so at The Health Museum for their Cocktails & Conversations Series: Culture, Cuisine & Contagion: Ancient Egypt & Today.
While enjoying light bites and cocktails, guests will participate in an open discussion with Dr. Sabrina Sholts, Curator of Biological Anthropology at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural Science, and Dr. Salima Ikram, Distinguished Professor and Egyptologist in exploring socio-cultural connections between health and disease, and discovering the research in genetics that has provided clues to the past.
Through the exploration of culture, exhibits, and epidemics in ancient Egypt, this exciting event will improve our understanding of the ecosystems within and around us that influence our health through a historical perspective.
