Epigenetics: How Environment Changes Your Biology

Online Event

Epigenetics is the science of living DNA, charting the chemical pathways that spur DNA into action by turning genes on and off. This rapidly advancing field has overturned traditional ideas about heredity, revealing that both behavior and the environment can affect the way our genes work. Epigenetics is ubiquitous, influenced by activities like diet and lifestyle. Led by Alan Carter.

Meaningful Movies: Evergreen

Online Event

In February, Meaningful Movies Bellevue will screen Evergreen, from Bullfrog Films. In this film, we meet Marianne Edain and Steve Erickson, who have worked continually to retain the rural character and ecological diversity of Whidbey Island in Puget Sound, just north of Seattle. Through their organization Whidbey Environmental Action Network (WEAN), Edain and Erickson have monitored county applications for development and logging; challenged projects that violate state environmental law and led the way in science-based environmental public policymaking. In partnership with citizens and communities up and down Whidbey Island, they have helped keep trees standing and protected sensitive island ecosystems. Join us for this inspiring film and learn what is happening right here in Puget Sound to help protect our natural world. Plan to join via Zoom to find out what you can do to help support this work!

Fourth Wednesday Book Club: Lessons in Chemistry

Online Event

Please join us to discuss Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus. Chemist Elizabeth Zott is not your average woman. But it’s the early 1960s and her all-male team at Hastings Research Institute takes a very unscientific view of equality. Except for one: Calvin Evans; the lonely, brilliant, Nobel–prize nominated grudge-holder who falls in love with—of all things—her mind. True chemistry results. 
But like science, life is unpredictable. Which is why a few years later Elizabeth Zott finds herself not only a single mother, but the reluctant star of America’s most beloved cooking show Supper at Six. Her unusual approach to cooking proves revolutionary. But as her following grows, not everyone is happy, because as it turns out, Elizabeth Zott isn’t just teaching women to cook, she’s daring them to change the status quo.
