Next Meeting - September 9, 4:30, JFB B-1

Hello everyone,

Welcome back! We're excited to kick off the semester with our first meeting on Monday, September 9th 4:30 - 5:30 in JFB B-1.

The first half of our meeting will be dedicated to administrative plans (committees, seminar series, budget) and the second half will be dedicated to a discussion led by Andy and Dylan. We will be talking about the recent New York Times article, "Many Genes Influence Same-Sex Sexuality, Not a Single 'Gay Gene'". You might also find the original published study interesting to read. However, the primary focus will be how society reported on the science.

See you Monday!
