If you think inflammation is generally a scratchy spot that’s not very significant, you should know researchers are working to understand the connection between inflammation and chronic diseases, including heart disease and cancer. We’ll learn about inflammation and how to reduce it. Our guest is Dr. Lisa Christopher-Stine, associate professor of medicine & neurology and director of the John Hopkins Myositis Center. She will be presenting at John Hopkins Medicine's annual Woman’s Journey seminar next week.
