The Philadelphia Science Festival continues today, and events around the city include a science happy hour at The Continental in Old City and science night at the Phillies game. But if public health is your game, head over to Rembrandt’s Restaurant in Fairmount tonight for an evening with The Public’s Health.

Michael, Jonathan, and Janet, along with Don Sapatkin, our editor at the Inquirer, will be joined by Tony Valdés, CEO of the Children Crisis Treatment Center, Stacey Trooskin from the Drexel University College of Medicine, and Daniel Beiting from the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine. With our guests we’ll discuss the relationship between veterinary medicine and public health; the public health impact of Hepatitis C and other infectious diseases; and the health of children in Philadelphia.

The event is free and open to the public and will run from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Hope to see you there.
