Samantha Meltzer-Brody, MD, MPH, will headline the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences' weekly Science Cafe series on Thursday, Oct. 19.

Meltzer-Brody's talk is titled "Tackling Postpartum Depression through Technology and Clinical Trials."

Meltzer-Brody, director of the University of North Carolina’s Perinatal Psychiatry Program, which was the first of its kind in the U.S., is tackling the disorder through treatment, clinical trials and technology. Meltzer-Brody is leading a promising clinical trial at UNC using the investigational medication Brexanolone. Early data showed “remarkable” results in its treatment of PPD. She also created an international PPD genetics consortium that’s harnessing the power of technology in a smartphone app that’s available for iOS and Android devices.

The event will take place Thursday, Oct. 19 from 7 - 8:30 p.m. at the Museum of Natural Sciences in downtown Raleigh. It is free and open to the public. More details are available here.
