OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A medical expert will offer insight into transgender science at the next Omaha Science Cafe.

Jay Irwin is an assistant professor at the University of Nebraska at Omaha who has studied medical sociology. His research focuses on transgender health, lesbian health and related issues.

More people are interested in transgender science because Olympic champion Bruce Jenner announced this spring that he identifies as a woman.

The event is scheduled to begin 7 p.m. on June 9 at the Slowdown, 729 N. 14th St. in Omaha.

Science Cafes are free educational events sponsored by UNMC and other groups to increase people’s science literacy. They are open to everyone 21 and older. Go to www.unmc.edu/sciencecafe for more information about Science Cafes.
