    The University of West Alabama’s College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics invites the community to Science Coffee Shop on Oct. 11 at 6 p.m. at the Coffee Shop on Monroe in downtown Livingston, Ala.

    This Science Coffee Shop is in partnership with the Athletic Training & Sports Medicine Center, the Black Belt Museum, the Alabama Humanities Foundation, the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame, and the Smithsonian’s “Museum on Main Street” exhibit, “Hometown Teams: How Sports Shape America” on display at the Museum through October 31.

    Brad Montgomery, UWA head athletic trainer and assistant professor; Codi Washburn, UWA athletic trainer and clinical instructor; and Joni Davenport, UWA athletic trainer and clinical education coordinator, will present a discussion entitled “Athletic Training, Concussions, and Player Safety.”

    Science Coffee Shop is designed to give the public exposure to the world of science and beyond. The event highlights relevant, interesting or current science topics in a casual and relaxed setting with UWA’s faculty and staff. With the arrival of a sports exhibit to campus, the College of Natural Science and Mathematics sought to highlight emerging issues in sports medicine and athletic training like concussions and the safety of players on and off the field.

    Each Science Coffee Shop should last 45 minutes but can be extended based on the debates and discussion.

    The event is free and open to the public and light refreshments will be served. High school and college students and parents are encouraged to attend. For more information, please contact Dr. Mustafa Morsy at mmorsy@uwa.edu or call 205-652-5541.
