As the director of addictions education in the UNMC Department of Psychiatry, Dr. Balasanova is actively involved with educational and clinical program development for incorporating addictions curricula into health professions education and integrating addictions services across the continuum of care.

Science Cafés involve a face-to-face conversation with a scientist about current science topics. They are open to everyone (21 and older) and take place in casual settings like pubs and coffeehouses. Each meeting is organized around an interesting topic of conversation. A scientist gives a brief presentation followed by a Q-and-A period.

Pizza will be provided for the first 50 people by the Nebraska Coalition for Lifesaving Cures.
