What do a helicopter, a friendly pack of service dogs and a team of researchers and health experts have in common? They’re all part of Health Matters, Stanford Medicine's free community day.
This annual event returns tomorrow, and an estimated 1,500 visitors are expected to come to campus for a day of health information talks, interactive exhibits, food and fun. Included in this year's event are Med School Morning, a suite of talks and activities designed for teens, and a dedicated women’s track - a series of talks hosted by the Stanford Center for Women and Sex Differences in Medicine that will address topics such as women's heart health, sleep, skin and bones.
If you won't be here, you can follow @StanfordMed and @StanfordCancer for live tweets from a selection of the day’s talks, including "Recharging the brain: How young blood might help reverse aging" with Tony Wyss-Coray, PhD; "Management of chronic pain: Getting to the root of persistent pain" with Sean Mackey, MD, PhD, and "Our relationship with food: How to make it a healthy one" with Maya Adam, MD. You can also take part in the conversation online using the #HealthMatters hashtag and see scenes from the day on Instagram.
