This is Utah’s largest family heart fair and it is sponsored by the Intermountain Medical Center Heart Institute. Enter the main lobby at the base of the patient tower (building 5).
FREE and open to the public—the fair has been expanded to cover heart issues concerning the entire family, from children to seniors.
“Since we know that lifestyle is an important factor in the development of heart disease, and that child obesity is a significant issue in our country, we thought it was important to broaden this year’s heart fair to address children’s heart problems and prevention at an early age,” says Donald Lappe, MD, chief of cardiology for the Intermountain Medical Center Heart Institute.

On February 18 and 19, 2015, The Barbara L. and Norman C. Tanner Center for Nonviolent Human Rights Advocacy will hold its Ninth Annual International Conference on Human Rights, Conflict Resolution, Nonviolence, and Peace. Our 2015 forum will examine the theme of “Human Rights: Conflict, Health, and Healing.” We will be exploring the long-term health consequences of exposure to conflict and oppression, including effects on veterans, individuals exposed to violent conflict in their youth, and victims of discrimination. A key focus of the conference will be on “transforming trauma” and human resiliency. Our keynote speaker will be Dr. James Gordon, founding director of the Center for Mind-Body Medicine. Dr. Gordon’s Global Trauma Relief campaign has worked with victims of violent conflict and natural disaster in Israel, Gaza, Haiti, Kosovo, and New Orleans as well as with US army veterans and their families.
A reception will follow the event.
This year’s conference will examine the health impacts of trauma related to conflict, poverty, oppression, and discrimination, especially among veterans, refugees, individuals exposed to conflict or trauma as children. The day will consist of three panels and a lunchtime dialogue session, with lunch provided. Please see our website for more details.
