Did you know that nutritional needs change dramatically as we age?

FRIDAY Tracing Our Heredity: A Layman’s History of Genetics 4/9–5/14 • F • 8:30 – 10:00 am • 6 sessions

One of mankind's earliest questions had to be "Where did I come from?" We searched for that answer for centuries until a lowly priest began experimenting with peas at a quiet abbey in Brno, Moravia in 1856. From there, the science of genetics has exploded, and now we have reached the point where diseases long thought punishments are at the point of being cured. Join us as we trace that journey, and learn what Brother Mendel's work has done for mankind. NEW!
