This Saturday, May 10, Stanford Medicine will host Health Matters, a free community event offering with a handful of talks and an interactive health pavilion. By providing information about mental health, cancer, sports medicine and other topics, the event seeks to share knowledge important to families and individuals in the community.
Neurosurgeon Gary Steinberg will discuss sports and brain injuries, joined by former 49ers quarterback Steve Young. Other talk subjects include sleep, mental health and dementia prevention.
In addition, visitors can explore an interactive health pavilion throughout the event. Organizations and groups attending will include nutrition expert Christopher Gardner, the Pet-Assisted Wellness Program, Stanford's Life Flight helicopter and crew, the Stanford Health Library and Manu Prakesh, the creator of a foldable, or "origami," microscope.
There are also three scheduled talks designed for teenagers interested in going to medical school, called "Med School Morning" classes. Those events were fully booked in advance of the event.
Visit the Health Matters website to find the full event schedule and more information about booths, speakers and attendance.
