Lecture - Evolution's Bite: A Story of Teeth, Diet, and Human Origins by Peter Ungar
Like living fossils teeth that can be studied and compared to those of our ancestors to teach us how we became human. Cutting-edge advances in understanding human evolution and climate change are leading to new approaches to uncovering dietary clues from fossil teeth. Paleoanthropologist Peter Ungar will present how teeth--their shape, chemistry, and wear--reveal how we came to be and what might or might not be the most natural diet for humans. Dr. Peter Ungar is director of the Environmental Dynamics Program at the University of Arkansas.

The 2017 PARTNERS Spring Luncheon
The event, which raises funds for scholarships, will be chaired by Kate McNair and Trish Millard, and hosted by the 2016-2017 PARTNERS Chair, Trish Greaser, and the PARTNERS Board Members. The Luncheon will honor the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo for their contributions to the UTHealth School of Nursing. By supporting the school’s Accelerated PhD Program and Veterans’ Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program, the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo plays a critical role in strengthening the school’s education initiatives. The keynote speaker will be Lee Woodruff, New York Times bestselling author and journalist. Lee will share her personal story of how her life changed in an instant when her husband Bob Woodruff, co-anchor of ABC’s World News Tonight, was severely wounded in a roadside bomb attack in Iraq. Lee’s story is inspiring and engaging and will remind us all that nothing is stronger than love and hope.
