Upcoming Programs

How to Optimize Your Heart Health

Date: September 20, 2023
12 to 1 p.m.
Speaker: John Glenn Tiu, M.D.

We will discuss the risk factors for developing heart disease, lifestyle changes to optimize your heart health, and tools such as calcium score and lipoprotein(a) to better understand your cardiovascular risk.

Healthy Aging Through Geroscience

Date: October 18, 2023
12 to 1 p.m.
Speaker: George Kuchel, M.D.

While aging is an inevitable part of life, no two individuals experience aging in quite the same way. Biological aging represents the major risk factor shared between common chronic diseases such as arthritis, cancer, dementia, and heart disease.

We will discuss lifestyle strategies, as well as emerging geroscience-guided therapies designed to target biological aging that have the potential to slow the onset and progression of multiple different chronic diseases in late life, thus adding both years to life and life to years.
