TBRRI Hosts Thunder Bay’s first CIHR Café Scientifique


HealthwatchTHUNDER BAY – Do you want to learn How to Stay Young? Novel Approaches to Aging – Thunder Bay’s first Café Scientifique, a free public event that provides expert insight into health-related issues of popular interest, provokes questions, and provides answers will kick off on January 27th. Anyone can take part in a CIHR Café Scientifique; there is no need for a science degree, simply a deep-rooted desire to talk about a particular health subject.

The Café focuses on How to Stay Young? Novel Approaches to Aging and will highlight some of the Canadian research that provides evidence that we may be able to slow the rate at which we age by modifying our life styles and reducing exposure to environmental factors that promote aging. Understanding how environmental factors such as diet, smoking, ultraviolet light, and pollution can damage and alter the behavior of cells and tissues in our bodies, helps CIHR funded-research identify novel approaches to prevent or reduce the leading causes of death in the elderly – heart attacks, strokes, cancers, aneurysms, and lung disease.
