Frida Kahlo: The Commercialization of an Artist
Hosted by Pamela Fuentes-Peralta, PhD
In this session we will discuss some of the most important moments of Kahlo's life and how certain events were essential in her creative work. We will also analyze how she became one of the most recognized artists all over the world. What was the role of the Mexican Revolution and the Chicana feminist movement in this process? We will compare this with the role that Hollywood and commercialization have played in erasing her past to make her a commodity of mass consumption.

The Biology and Epidemiology of COVID-19
Hosted by Aaron Steiner, PhD, and the Tri-Beta Biology Honors Society
This session will delve into the scientific evidence on the origin and biology of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes the COVID-19 disease, as well as its effects on the human body. Students will discuss what makes it so contagious, what risk factors contribute to COVID-19-related mortality, and how drugs are being designed to prevent and combat this infection. This session will provide students with evidence-based tools to evaluate new information on COVID-19 as it emerges, helping to separate science from spin. Members of the Tri-Beta Biology Honors Society will also be on hand to introduce their organization and answer questions.
