Evolution & Health at the U-M Museum of Natural History

Event Date/Time

Feb 2, 2012 to Jan 13, 2013
9:00 am until 5:00 pm


Ever wonder why so many people have knee problems and backaches? Or why we crave sweet and fatty foods? A new exhibition at the University of Michigan Museum of Natural History (UMMNH) explores these and other questions about our health. Evolution & Health explores how the ways in which we humans evolved promoted our survival, but not always our health. Featuring interactive components and videos, the exhibition explores how evolutionary factors contribute to contemporary health issues including low back pain, skin cancer, lactose intolerance and obesity. 

Note: The museum is open from noon-5 p.m. Sundays.
