Science Café 360° is an ongoing series of events to provide a casual space for researchers to connect with residents in the Washington, DC, metropolitan region, and for the public to provide their perspective on medical research. All Science Cafés are devoted to pressing local community health needs. Previous Science Cafés focused on asthma, mental health, sleep and health, and sickle cell disease.
Science Café 360° is an initiative involving four major DC health systems. It is supported by the Clinical and Translational Science Institute-Children’s National, a partnership between Children’s National Health System and The George Washington University, and the Georgetown-Howard Universities Center for Clinical and Translational Science.
