Live Longer, Live Stronger – Exclusive forum event

Thank you for attending one or more events in the special lecture series “Live Longer, Live Stronger” brought to you by the Fleet Science Center and the Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute.

We are excited to offer access to an exclusive follow up event. On May 26, 2021, all the fantastic speakers from the lecture series will join us for a forum event. After a brief introduction, you will be able to get up close and personal with the scientists in different break out rooms. The Sanford Burnham Prebys Institute researchers are looking forward to engaging with you on a more personal level and answer any questions you might have that we did not get to address in the individual lectures.

If you missed a lecture in the series, you can access the recordings on the Fleet Science Center YouTube channel at any time.
