An attorney and medical advocate is scheduled to speak about the unethical use of stem cells for profit.
The Omaha Science Cafe will host Gary Susser on June 11 at the Slowdown in Omaha. Susser will discuss how he and his wife, Judith, were exposed to the dangers of stem cells sold over the internet.
The couple worked with the show "60 Minutes" to reveal a scam by an Ecuador-based stem cell purveyor. The show captured an American doctor on a teleconference from Ecuador, promising the Sussers that their son's cerebral palsy would improve with four treatments that each cost $5,000.
Susser will be joined by Dave Crouse, president of the Nebraska Coalition for Lifesaving Cures and an emeritus professor at the University of Nebraska Medical Center.
