Your health – physical, cognitve, emotional – is yours to protect and take care of. To do so, a basic and scientific understanding how your body works in health and in sickness is essential. Your Health aims to do so through presentations and discussions on a monthly basis.
Our discussions focus on these areas: (1) cornerstones for maintaining good health and thus preventing preventable diseases, such as nutrition, exercise, sleep, stress management – healthy life style management, (2) common diseases – symptoms, diagnosis, risk factors, treatment/management, such as cardiovascular diseases, hypertension, diabetes, depression, among others. (3) specific topics brought up by members. All personal information will be kept confidential.
The meetings are hosted by different members at their homes. Please check the monthly Preview newsletter for details.
This section is led by Dr. TW Wiedmann, retired faculty at Stanford Medical School. Please contact TW for more information. Her email is in the Redbook Directory and the Preview newsletter.
