A look back at Health Matters, Stanford’s community day


On a sunny Saturday late last month, more than 1,500 people came to campus for Stanford Medicine's annual Health Matters event. During the free community day, visitors attended talks, took part in interactive exhibits, and learned about the latest advances in medicine.

A few photos from the day are above. And for those wanting more, videos and podcasts of many of the talks -- on topics such as heart health, nutrition, sleep and vision science -- are now available online. Enjoy!
