Health Matters to address women’s wellness, expand high school program

The free community education event includes talks about health for the entire family.

Health Matters, a free community education event sponsored by Stanford Medicine on the latest advances in medicine and health, will take place on May 14 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Li Ka Shing Center for Learning and Knowledge.

This year’s event will feature three panels on women’s health: one on heart health and stress reduction, another on women’s cancers and a third on “skin and bones and sleep.” In addition, faculty will give talks on topics ranging from the genetics of exceptional athletes to managing concussions to helping parents age gracefully.

“Med School Morning,” a discussion of medical careers and medical education for high school students, has been expanded to accommodate 300 attendees. It will include talks on TV depictions of emergency medicine and on the use of simulations in medical education, plus a panel discussion with current students.

Registration for the program begins April 1.



Stanford Medicine integrates research, medical education and health care at its three institutions - Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford Health Care (formerly Stanford Hospital & Clinics), and Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford.
