Our Fall Luncheon will be held on Tuesday, October 29th at the Sunshine Centre/ Luther Village. Dr. Richard Hughson, the Schlegel Research Chair in Vascular Aging and Brain Health in the Faculty of Applied Health Sciences will speak about Aging & Astronauts.

Rich will explain what we can learn about some of our own physiological changes as we age by studying astronauts before, during and after they return from a space mission. Among other topics he will speak about blood vessel stiffening and dizziness experienced by astronauts after long periods of weightlessness. He will tell us how we can use this knowledge to avoid falls, keep our blood vessels healthy and try to maintain optimal brain blood flow. Dr. Hughson has been principal investigator of many space flight related research projects during the past two decades in his laboratory and on the International Space Station. He, his students and colleagues have worked closely with Canadian astronauts Bob Thirsk and most recently, Chris Hadfield, who commanded the Space Station last spring.

Bring a guest or two, and enjoy visiting with friends from University of Waterloo!
