Sex, Science, Society and Reproduction

An Illustrated Talk with Dr. Barry Verkauf

Wednesday, August 30th, 2pm
Berkshire Museum

Join us for another fascinating discussion in OLLI's 2017 Distinguished Speakers Series.

Except for expressing intimacy, the principal reasons for sex are pleasure and the propagation of our species. For centuries, infertility has been a societal and personal problem, but remarkable scientific advances over the last 50 years have made it conceivable that sex will no longer be necessary-at least for reproductive purposes-with potentially significant societal implications.

Dr. Barry Verkauf, founding faculty of the USF College of Medicine, initiated the program responsible for the first IVF birth in Florida in 1986. He is currently an Affiliate Professor in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at USF.
