Health Hub

Thursday, February 15 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


Members & guests: free! RSVP below. 

Please join us for our first session of a new program: Health Hub. This program intends to draw likeminded, science-focused individuals who are interested in wellbeing and related lifestyle behaviors. The topic will change each session, and we are open to suggestions for future chats! During this session, we will discuss how physical exercise can benefit our brain and body health- a main prevention strategy of a common disease called Sarcopenia. We will review a few research articles, discuss any articles attendees have encountered on the subject, and talk about ways we can enhance our daily routines to be well in the long term. The topic will change each session, and we are open to suggestions for future chats! Hope to see you there.
