2021 Participant Webinar Series

Over the past six months, we have thoroughly enjoyed hosting these webinars, providing you with study results, activities, and future directions. Several topics were presented and discussed, including the WHI hormone trial, diet and nutrition, calcium and vitamin D, aging and cognition, and the role of physical activity in healthy aging.

We are currently taking a brief pause from our monthly webinars and will resume them in the Fall of 2021.
