The Department of Surgical Sciences invites you to a public lecture presented by Professor Doug Seals, a Distinguished Professor of Integrative Physiology and Medicine at the University of Colorado.
This presentation will summarise contemporary views of biomedical aging in humans, including the new focus on “healthspan,” i.e., the portion of lifespan associated with good health and function. In particular, the importance of preserving cardiovascular health throughout the lifespan will be emphasized. To that end, evidence-based lifestyle and pharmacological strategies to maintain cardiovascular function and reduce the risk of developing cardiovascular diseases will be discussed.
