The McGill University Department of Family Medicine and the St. James Literary Society are pleased to present the Dr. Hirsh Rosenfeld Annual Distinguished Lecture in Family Medicine.
Of interest to the general public as well as to health-care professionals, this Distinguished Lecture Series in Family Medicine was inaugurated in 1990 and was made possible by an endowment by the late Dr. Hirsh Rosenfeld, a Montreal family physician. He was a staunch supporter of a number of educational activities and this lecture series is another example of his generosity.
Refreshments will be served.
This talk will explore the fascinating biology of aging and why this is so challenging in our present day and age. Dr. Clarfield will explain why we get old (usually), but, more importantly, why and how we cannot last forever despite the advances in modern day medicine. He will also give some basic advice on how we can increase the likelihood of living and enjoying a relatively healthy and happy old age.
Are we watching the bitter end of the Western Church model, including its colonial steeples and linguistic apartheid? Or, are we poised for what might become the greatest reformation and revival of the church, ever?
Reverend Graham Singh, the new pastor at St Jax Montréal will explore these questions as he examines the Montreal case study in light of a wider radical shift in the way church buildings open to their local communities.
Following the presentation, sandwiches, scones, pastry, tea and coffee will be served.
