Join us for our next journal club on Thursday, November 29! Promoted as a natural source of iron to prevent iron deficiency and anemia, the Lucky Iron Fish has recently received funding on CBC’s ‘Dragons’ Den.’ We will be discussing whether, based on the results from a recent RCT, the lucky iron fish should be considered efficacious in reducing anemia and iron deficiency.

TIME: 2:30 – 3:30 pm
