STEM Café: Managing Health – How our response to disease has changed

Cancer, AIDS and other serious diseases were considered fatal until very recently. Although not all of these illnesses have cures, people with these and other chronic illnesses are living longer and fuller lives. What scientific and medical advances are helping people to live longer with serious illness? How have we learned to better manage disease and, in some cases, prevent disease progression? What interventions are available to promote health while managing a chronic condition?

Find out more with speaker Jeanne Isabel, NIU Associate Professor and Chair of Health Studies.
