Senior Monday at the R.H. Fleet

  • Mon Dec 3
Lecture: Precision Medicine: Forging a Path to More Effective, Less Toxic, Personalized Treatments for Patients.
Precision medicine seeks to identify the unique molecular characteristics of each patient and their disease. The goal is to then treat the patient based on these personal and disease characteristics rather than with traditional, standard of care practices that are blanket therapies for anyone with this disease. Advances in drug development for targeted therapies, "biomarkers” as predictive and diagnostic indicators, and the world of “omics” will be discussed in this presentation, with a few specific examples to highlight each of these.

Senior Monday at the R.H. Fleet

  • Mon Jan 7
  • R.H. Fleet Science Center at Balboa Park
Lecture: So you’re telling me I have more than a trillion epigenomes?
Yes, I am. Gene, genome, epigenome… not long ago these terms were rare to encounter outside of a laboratory. However, these terms are becoming increasingly common in our society, and our understanding of the concepts they represent can influence decisions about healthcare, lifestyle, politics, and more. Join us as we discuss recent advances in our understanding of the human genome, and how it contributes to our health and well-being on a daily basis.

Film: Mysteries of the Unseen World

Senior Mondays are the first Monday of each Month.

If you're 65+ get together with other Torrey Piners for Senior Monday at the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center in Balboa Park. The entrance fee of only $8.00 includes a lecture, all current exhibits, and an IMAX movie.

The lectures begin at 10:30 AM in the Heikoff Dome Theater. Tickets are required to attend the lecture and can be requested at the Ticket Counter. Lecture space is limited, and lectures often sell out. Visitors are encouraged to stay to enjoy the galleries and special senior discounts in Galileo's Cafe and the North Star Science Store. Fleet's doors will open at 9:30 a.m. on the first Monday each month to get Senior Monday started early.

Note: The schedule is subject to change, so it's a good idea to check the Reuben H. Fleet Web site at http://www.rhfleet.org/events/senior-mondays. You will also find more information about the lectures, speakers and films there at the Web site.
