About Health Matters

Stanford Medicine’s free community event explores the latest advances in medicine, health, and wellness in a fun, interactive environment. Be sure to join us on campus on Saturday, May 18, 2024 from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. PT to hear from our world-renowned experts as they discuss their latest research and offer practical tips for healthy living. And don’t miss our outdoor Health Pavilion, which offers dozens of hands-on activities to help you live your best life.


Health Matters will be held outside at the Stanford School of Medicine campus near the Li Ka Shing Center. Free parking is available at the Stock Farm Garage (PS-5) and the parking lots (L-17/L-18) on the corners of Stock Farm Road, Campus Drive, and Welch Road.
