Description

Is reversing the many effects of aging possible? It appears the answer is a growing, “yes”. The underlying theory of why we age, and why age is associated with diseases such as dementia, heart disease, osteoporosis, cancer, infections, etc. is being answered today as multiple researchers learn about the importance of telomeres and how to repair them. Still, many nurses, and certainly most patients, have never heard of a telomere, or how basic health decisions impact the telomeres. This course was created to fill that gap.

Objectives
