You will receive an email notice in advance of the meeting, along with a registration form and menu choice (if applicable). To reserve your place at a meeting, follow the directions as stated on the email notice or on the meeting’s announcement on this website.

Speaker: Dr. Henry Milman, Forensic Toxicologist
We’ve all seen toxicologists look into deaths by poison or investigate crimes involving drugs on shows like CSI or Bones, but what does a toxicologist really do? And how can their work impact a trial … both for the prosecution and the defense?
Dr. Harry Milman will tell us about all that and more. With four decades of experience, Dr. Milman provides testimony in toxicology, pharmacology and forensics at depositions and jury trials.
An expert in everything from drug and alcohol overdoses to the effect of toxic chemicals, Dr. Milman will talk about some of his high-profile trials, show us how various substances impact the human body, and take us through some role-playing exercises where we navigate the clues.
Cost: The meeting is FREE and open to the public.
Reservations: While not required, we ask that you PLEASE RSVP so we can ensure the library sets out enough chairs. RSVP by email to admeyerwriter [at] gmail [dot] com by Friday morning, April 5th. Of course, if you decide at the last minute to attend, we’d still love to see you.
Lunch: There are several restaurants nearby for those who would like to go out to lunch after the meeting.
Parking: There is plenty of free parking at the library.
