SINAI FORUM PRESENTS ROBERT KRULWICH NOV. 8
The 56 th season of the Sinai Forum Presented by Purdue University North Central will continue its season on Nov. 8 at 7 p.m. at Elston Middle School in Michigan City with an appearance by NPR radio host and author Robert Krulwich who will present, “Making Medical Science WONDER-ful.” The sponsor for this program is the Duneland Health Council.
As co-host of NPR's Radio Lab, correspondent of NPR's Science Unit and ABC News Special Correspondent, Krulwich is known as an expert at explaining complex issues in a clear, compelling and entertaining style. He captivates his audiences while making use of vivid images and unusual examples, such as the time he explained the structure of DNA using a banana or creating his own Italian Opera, “Ratto Interesso” to explain how the Federal Reserve regulates interest rates.
Krulwich pioneered the use of animation on ABC's Nightline, World News and on NPR's internet site to explore cellular biology and subprime lending. In 2007 The National Academy of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine gave Radio Lab its top honor for excellence in communicating science to the general public. He has won numerous other awards including two Emmys, a George Polk Award, a Dupont Award and the National Cancer Institute's Extraordinary Communicator's Award
