Associate Professor of Chemistry Sheryl Hemkin will join community members for a workshop hosted by Mount Vernon Nazarene University (MVNU) focusing on the scientific and societal impact of drugs and the process of recovery.
Hemkin will speak from 9 - 9:50 a.m. on how bodies react to substances from sugar to opiates and offer a perspective on making healthier choices.
