The physics of radiation and its role in our lives is the focus of the next Omaha Science Café at 7 p.m., Dec. 4 at the Slowdown, 729 N. 14th St.
Brian Hill, a medical physicist, will give a brief overview of medical physics and the process of radiation therapy, and the role that technology plays in each area.
Hill is board certified by the American Board of Radiology in therapeutic radiologic physics and has worked for eight years at Jaeger Corporation, a company that provides radiation oncology services in Omaha.
Science Cafe is a free educational event sponsored by the University of Nebraska Medical Center and other groups to increase the population’s science literacy.
They are open to everyone 21 and older.
