CBD Oil: Snake Oil or Cure All
Jan 19 | 10 am-12 pm | Online
Register by Jan 15
Dr. Erin Merritt, Doctor of Pharmacy, will give us some of the real science behind the uses of CBD oil. We can then make an informed decision about whether to consider using it, rather than just stopping at one of the numerous places displaying CBD banners and giving it a try without understanding for what, or for whom, it may or may not be appropriate. As time permits she will also give us some of her thoughts on other natural and holistic alternatives available as we attempt to navigate our "golden years".

ALL members will recall that Dr. Laura Gellott has several times talked about her book-in-progress about the life, times, and travels of Helen Perry Curtis. The book Helen Perry Curtis and the European Trip of a Lifetime was published in October 2020. In this presentation, we will follow Helen through the Europe of the 1930s: a time when travel was colorful and often glamorous, but also an era when Europe stood on the brink of profound challenge and change. Included will be some of the challenges and rewards encountered in bringing Dr. Gellott's book to publication.
