Science and Philosophy Seminar of the Eastern Shore of Virginia has scheduled its next seminar, “Crazy for Cacao? Chocolate and Health.” The free 90-minute seminar will be held at 12:30 p.m. on Friday, February 17 in the Lecture Hall of the Eastern Shore Community College, 29300 Lankford Hwy, Melfa, VA 23410.
Philip Wilson will recount how this tastiest of natural products has been tried and tested as a therapeutic agent and explore how promoting the benefits of chocolate has become part of modern nutritional science and medicine.
Before Wilson took over the operations of the Book Bin in Onley, VA, his academic career included a long stint at Penn State’s College of Medicine. It was there, in Hershey, he explored the wide-ranging history surrounding the use of chocolate as medicine.
These seminars are occasionally rescheduled or postponed on short notice. Prospective attendees are urged to check the Seminar’s website (www.SciPhi.org) shortly before a scheduled date.
Science and Philosophy Seminar is an informally organized group that meets more or less regularly to explore and discuss a wide array of topics, ranging from philosophical speculation to scientific research. All Seminars are open to the public. Admission is free.
