Details:
The Lifespan Society of B.C. is proud to present its second annual Mini-Conference, to be held in downtown Vancouver on December 7th. Last year's Mini Conference brought together Society members from across B.C and this year we are excited to host the event in a larger space to accommodate our growing membership. The theme of this year's event is "Life Extension and Your Brain" and we are hosting a full day of guest speakers, presentations, lunch and prizes for new and existing members. The complimentary lunch is suitable for most diets (vegetarian and vegan friendly).

The speakers:

Dano Morrison - Use it or Lose it: Cognitive exercise for extending longevity

Dano holds a BSc. from the University of British Columbia and performs research at the Brain Research Centre, where he studies how seizures disrupt neuroplasticity in the developing brain. Dano served as an executive for the UBC Life Extension Club and has published in several student journals. His interest in neuroplasticity, specifically the ways in which it might be manipulated to prevent disease and enhance quality of life, unites all of his work.

Hans Wu - Nutrition+ and Brain Health

Hans is an upper-year medical student with a large interest in nutrition and health. He has been involved with various online life extension forums for many years, and has a voracious interest in supporting lifestyle choices with solid evidence.

Keegan Macintosh - Go West: Cryonics in British Columbia

Keegan received his J.D. from the University of British Columbia in 2012, and is the Executive Director of Lifespan Society. Keegan has been involved in life extension community-building in Vancouver since his time in law school, and is now Executive Director of Lifespan Society. Keegan is a board member of the Insitute for Evidence Based Cryonics and the Cryonics Society of Canada, and an advisory board member of Alcor Life Extension Foundation.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
