Science or science fiction? You’ve heard of stem cells, but what are they?  Where do stem cells  come from and what do they do? Why are thousands of medical researchers the world over conducting tests and clinical trials to determine the safety and efficacy of stem cells in addressing medical conditions as varied as osteoporosis, chronic skin ulcers, soft tissue injuries, scars, and lung disease? What are the implications for organ and tissue replacements? How do you identify a quality provider of cellular therapy? What does the Alberta College of Physicians and Surgeons have to say about stem cell therapies . . .?

Please join us on February 23 to hear UCPBA member, Calgary family physician and stem cell industry specialist, Dr. Peter Neweduk, speak to us about stem cells and the frontier of regenerative medicine in his presentation titled: Stem Cells: Hype, Hope and Reality.

Payment may be made online below or at the door by cash, cheque, Visa or MC. If you planning to attend, we would appreciate an RSVP by Monday, February 20th to admin@ucpbacalgary.org.
