The Placenta Lab was very happy to take part, for the second time, in the 2019 Ottawa Promise Walk for Preeclampsia. The Promise Walk raises funds to support awareness and research efforts aimed at tackling this devastating disease of pregnancy which kills almost 70,000 women each year. The Placenta Lab had a booth set up with placenta experiments, information about the placenta and placenta-mediated diseases, and lots of fun activities for children!

What better way to learn about science than over a pint of some of the finest brew in Ottawa? Pint of Science does just that! The Placenta Lab was able to entertain over 80 attendees with talks on how the placenta works, AI in placenta-mediated disease, and more! Three cheers for science!

With Preeclampsia being one of the leading diseases associated with the placenta, the importance of this event strikes very close to home. We had the opportunity not only to participate in this fantastic event, but also to educate the other participants about the placenta! We had a placenta plinko, placenta experiments... even placenta cookies!
