Free health care fair


Stanford Medicine is hosting Health Matters on May 19, a free communitywide event where participants can hear from world-renowned physicians on the latest medical innovations and get tips on healthy living. The event runs from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Li Ka Shing Center for Learning and Knowledge, 291 Campus Drive, on the medical school campus.

The day will include talks by distinguished faculty on subjects ranging from heart health and stroke prevention to hearing loss, palliative care, immunotherapy, genomics and obsessive-compulsive disorder. Throughout the day, a series of mini-talks will focus on nutrition and other important health issues. The event also will feature interactive, hands-on attractions and activities for the entire family.

High school students interested in pursuing a career in health care can participate in Med School Morning, featuring lectures, hands-on lab presentations and interactive activities on a variety of scientific topics. Advance registration for Med School Morning is required. Registration opens in mid-April.

More information on the day's events is available online.
