"What's really going on with teen pregnancy -- facts, myths, science, and beliefs " will be presented by Andrea Kane, senior director of policy and partnerships at the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy. Kane will talk about the latest trends and research in teen pregnancy and what teens say about the issue.
Kane joined the National Campaign in 2001. From 2001 through 2008, she was also affiliated with the Brookings Institution's Center on Children and Families. Before joining the National Campaign, Kane served at the White House Domestic Policy Council as a special assistant to President Bill Clinton. She has also worked at the National Governors' Association, and at the state and local level in California, Texas and Virginia.
Café Scientifique, co-sponsored by Montana's INBRE and COBRE programs, provides a relaxed setting for people to learn about current scientific topics. The concept started in England in 1998 and has spread to a handful of locations in the United States. Following a short presentation by a scientific expert, the majority of time is reserved for questions, answers and lively discussion.
