Due to popular demand, VIU Elder College is expanding its Saturday Speaker event featuring geneticist Angela Brooks-Wilson who will be discussing her Healthy Aging Study looking at the link between genetics and longevity.
The event is slated to take place April 11 in the Forum at the Parksville Civic and Technology Centre located at 100 Jensen Avenue. Brooks Wilson will present from 10 a.m. to noon and again from
2 p.m. to 4 p.m. the same day. It will be a repeat presentation, not a continuation. Admission is $10 at the door and open to anybody interested in Brooks Wilson’s study on “super seniors” and the secret to a long, healthy life.
