Science-Based Strategies to Support Your Immune System
The immune system is a marvelously complex set of organs, cells, and chemicals that fight microbes every day. While there are many products, plans, and pills on the market claiming to boost the immune system, how can you know which remedies and lifestyle choices truly make a difference?
In this noontime webinar, you will learn how to keep your immune system healthy based on scientific evidence, not just blogs or urban legend. Understand how the immune system changes as we age and what actions are especially important for older adults. We will examine trending immune remedies and discuss what the science says about their efficacy. Separate fact from fiction when it comes to the link between a healthy immune system and diet, exercise, sleep, supplements, and stress. You will walk away with 1-2 practical steps you can take right away to keep yourself healthier.
This class will be recorded and a temporary link to the recording will be shared with all registered participants, which will be active for one week. Stanford University benefits-eligible employees must attend the live session in order to receive BeWell incentive points.
Instructor: Sally Duplantier, MS, is a gerontologist and healthspan educator focused on helping people “live their best life longer.” She recently graduated with a master of science degree in gerontology from USC and has a certificate in nutrition science from Stanford.
