You’re invited to to the Heart Research Center’s 18th Annual Lecture featuring, Sandra Davidge, PhD, professor of obstetrics, gynecology, and physiology; Canada research chair in women’s cardiovascular health; and director of the division of research in obstetrics and gynecology at the University of Alberta. Her lecture, “Born to be Fat? How Nine Months in the Uterus Impacts Your Health,” will take place Friday, April 8 at 5 p.m. in the Doernbecher Vey Conference Center.
Dr. Davidge is an expert in the field of “programming.” Programming research is based on adverse changes in the prenatal environment that can change a baby’s developmental path, leading to chronic disease, including heart disease, obesity and diabetes, later in life. Dr. Davidge will discuss the effects of prenatal life on heart function and obesity. She will discuss new findings related to appetite regulation and differences in metabolism and will share her findings on the effects
of a high fat diet on children who were born small.
After the lecture, you are invited to attend a reception to meet Dr. Davidge and to learn about advances in programming research at OHSU. For more information information, call the Heart Research center at 503-494-2305 or email email@example.com.
This lecture is sponsored by the OHSU Heart Research Center and the March of Dimes.
