Media Advisory - Café Scientifique in Edmonton: Discussions and debates on housing over a cup of coffee

    OTTAWA, Sept. 20 /CNW Telbec/ - The Canadian Institutes of Health
Research invites you to a Café Scientifique on the effects of Edmonton's
overheated housing market on our health. This event will take place in a local
café and will allow Edmontonians to hear from experts and ask questions about
the health impact of not finding a place to live.
    Come find out what experts are discovering about the health implications
of living without a home.
    Join us for discussions, debates, and refreshments. This free public
event is presented by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research and its
Institute of Gender and Health.
    What is a Café Scientifique? Remember when you used to spend untold hours
sitting around a table over a beer or coffee with your friends, solving all
the problems of the world, debating all the "big questions" of the day? Café
Scientifique is, simply put, a larger and slightly more organized version of
those conversations. It's an opportunity to bring together researchers with
members of the public to spark a discussion about some of the most interesting
- and sometimes contentious - research currently underway in Canada.
