The BC Women’s Health Foundation is proud to partner with the Secret Garden Tea Company for the second annual Women Aging Well, an exclusive after-hours event complete with high-tea and engaging discussion.

Join us and our esteemed guest, Dr. Liisa Galea, as we learn about prioritizing and advocating for your health as you age and discuss the unique ways the female body and brain changes with time.

100% of proceeds will support the BC Women’s Health Foundation.

Learn about our speakers:

Dr. Liisa Galea is a Professor in the Department of Psychology, a member of the Centre for Brain Health, Director of the Graduate Program in Neuroscience, and a Scientific Advisor at Women’s Health Research Institute at the University of British Columbia. As the evenings primary speaker, she will share the impact that stress and age can have on the female brain and the development of diseased brain states such as Alzheimer’s, as well as what you can do personally to keep your brain healthy throughout your life.

With conviction and courage, she is committed to leading the evolution of women’s healthcare across the province and championing for greater investment in studies that are specific to women’s unique physiology.
