The NIH Office of Dietary Supplements is pleased to present the Trans-NIH Resilience Working Group Winter Seminar: 

The Science of Bouncing Back From Health Stressors:
Development and Application of the Duke Pepper Model of Physical Resilience

presented by:
Heather E. Whitson, M.D.
Director of the Duke Center for the Study of Aging and Human Development
Duke University School of Medicine
Durham, North Carolina

Wednesday, February 9, 11 a.m. – 12 p.m. ET

Maintaining independence and quality of life as we age depends on our ability to recover after health stressors, such as infections, illnesses, and injuries. Dr. Whitson will describe how the Duke University School of Medicine Claude D. Pepper Older Americans Independence Center (aka Duke Pepper Center) has operationalized the concept of physical resilience. She will provide examples of how the physical resilience framework and measurement approaches are being applied to identify predictors and mechanisms of recovery after common health stressors.

The seminar will be presented virtually via WebEx. Save the event to your calendar: Trans-NIH February Seminar.

Participants are encouraged to submit questions in advance of the webinar via email to: Trans-NIHResilienceProgram@od.nih.gov or through the WebEx Chat feature during the presentation.
