Preserving Memory To Be Explored at Annual Women's Health Day Hosted by Hadassah’s Women’s Health Center
"Memory and Preservation" is the focus of this year's Women's Health Day sponsored by the Hadassah Medical Center's Patricia and Russell Fleischman Center for Women's Health at the Israel Museum.
The Health Day features lectures, workshops, and activities, with specialists in the field, both from Hadassah and various medical organizations. Among the sub-topics are: "Memory Problems Among Seniors: Diagnosis and Treatment"; "Hormones and the Brain/Hormones and Memory"; and "Eating Healthy for a Healthy Memory: Nutrition and Memory Preservation."
The program also contains physical activity workshops—for example, exercises to strengthen one's feet and improve posture; movements specifically for those suffering with osteoporosis; pelvic floor strengthening; dance; and a workshop showcasing physical activity as a way to improve memory.
Participants will be treated to a tour of the Israel Museum's Herod Exhibit, along with a lecture by its curator and also have the opportunity to be guided through other museum exhibits as well.
Hadasit, Hadassah’s Technology Transfer Arm, Reviews
When the Hadassah University Medical Center’s physicians suggest a
solution to a medical problem which can lead to the development of a new
medicine or product, Hadasit, Hadassah’s technology transfer arm, explores its
feasibility and supports the promotion of those viable ideas with innovation
potential. Although 2012 has been “a year full of challenges for the life
science industry,” says Einat Zisman, Hadasit’s Chief Executive Officer,
Hadasit still signed 125 agreements for clinical trials, all to be done at
Hadassah. In addition, Hadasit signed 15 agreements for cooperation and
commercialization of technologies that were developed at Hadassah. Click here
