Dr. Antonis Bartsiokás, associate professor and director of the Laboratory of Anthropology, Democritus University of Thrace, Greece will be lecturing at Shawnee State University as part of the Jane M.G. Foster Distinguished Lecture Series at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 25 at the University Center East Sodexo Ballroom.

Bartsiokás has researched thousands of years of the history of the human species. His findings prove the more we learn about our earliest forebears, the more we understand about our physiology.

He will present, “From Troglobites to Troglodytes: Life Histories of Cave Hominins” with insights about cave research and the microscopic universe of physiopathology, including what they reveal about healthier lifestyles today.

Bartsiokás will offer tips on eating healthy, losing weight and building strong bones to promote healthy living.

The event is sponsored by the SSU Development Foundation and the Department of Social Sciences. It is free and open to the public.
