Start the week off learning about Climate Change and Human Health Today from 6:30-8:00PM! This event will discuss a range of topics from disease to food production and includes three professors speaking on the topics. Always be learning!

“Join Beta Psi Omega, UIUC’s only preprofessional biology fraternity, and Students for Environmental Concerns, UIUC’s oldest and largest environmental organization, for a discussion of how climate change affects human health!

Climate change is expected to exacerbate health problems that already pose a major burden to vulnerable populations, according to a 2017 UN Report. In addition to the obvious health concerns raised by pollution, a changing climate affects food production, infectious disease patterns, and chronic disease prevalence. This panel aims to explore some of these connections. Speakers will be discussing topics such as disease transmission, resource availability, and microbial ecology.

Speakers:
Dr. Brenda Wilson, Molecular and Cellular Biology
Dr. Brian Allan, Integrative Biology
Dr. Helen Nyugen, Civil and Environmental Engineering

The YMCA is wheelchair accessible. If you need any disability-related accommodations, please let us know.”

Spurlock Museum has become a hallmark of cultural events in Champaign County. This Friday from 4:00PM-5:00PM you have their “Native November Dance Exhibition” in conjunction with The Native American House. Be supportive and learn about the Ojibwe Nations!

“Join us for a Native American House and Spurlock Museum Native November dance exhibition. Friday, November 16 at 4pm Spurlock Museum will host an interactive Native American dance exhibition highlighting the Men’s Traditional and Woodlands styles. This event will also feature Northern style singing by the Bad River Singers. The group comes to us from the Bad River and Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwe Nations. The Ojibwe are among the Tribal Nations whose homelands included what is now known as Illinois.

Guests can expect to learn the importance of regalia worn in the dances, including aspects of its creation, meaning, and use. The artists will help guests understand how songs and dances hold significance for Tribal communities. The audience will be able to participate in round and two-step dances. This free public program welcomes both families and adults.

The Spurlock galleries will be open before and during this program and visitors can take a look at objects in the North American gallery, including Grass Dance regalia.

This month is Native November. You can find all of NAH’s Native November programs at https://www.facebook.com/TheNativeAmericanHouse/.”

This is a somewhat special event for me… I know the band! Local members of Bad Colombus are coming together from all over for a concert, I know for a fact that one of the members currently resides in Northern Wisconsin, he’s coming home for this special concert! Do you enjoy local music that can be comical but also heartfelt? Bad Columbus gives you the best of both worlds and they’re our age, find them at The Iron Post with Grant Allen this Saturday from 9:00PM to 10:28PM! Don’t hold out!

“8 years ago, young and dumb, Bad Columbus played at the Iron Post: their first ever live set!

8 years later, dumb, Bad Columbus comes home! #UHUNNA

Grant Allen (formerly of Cops and Robots, Puzzle Quest, Stains RemRemRem Stains, and more) will kick things off with some of his solo work at 9 PM!!

All this and more for a mere 3 dollars at the door.”
