Social Relationships & Health
Presentation by Dr. Pathik Wadhwa, M.D., Ph.D.
Humans are social animals. Does the quantity and quality of our social relationships impact our state of health, future risk of disease, and our life span? Are the effects of relationships via social media the same or different from those of in-person relationships? Please join our presenter Dr. Pathik Wadhwa in a discussion that will touch on the biological and behavioral science behind social relationships, both in-person and virtual.
Wednesday, 3/24 7:00 to 8:00 pm.
