Understanding World-Wide Religions
(6-week course) 

Wed., Oct. 9, 16, 23; Nov. 6, 13, 20,
6:30-8:30 pm

Religion impacts all of us every day: foreign policy, government decisions, social interactions, and the wars we fight. What is religion, why do people believe, where did it come from, and why don’t most people talk openly about it? What are the similarities, the differences, and the benefits to followers of the major religions? What trends can we identify? These and other questions will be discussed as well as your own experiences with religion, in this “no-judgment” course.

Diabetes: What it Is, How to Prevent It, and How to Reverse It

Mon. Oct. 14, 2019, 6:30-8:30pm

With so much controversy and seemingly contradictory information regarding Type II Diabetes, we will set the record straight as to what diabetes really is - what does it mean to be pre-diabetic; how you can safeguard yourself against becoming diabetic; as well as being given the practical tools you can implement now to reverse this lifestyle-related condition. Also discussed will be the dreaded Type III Diabetes, a term used when Alzheimer’s disease is triggered by insulin resistance in the brain. This condition is most often used to describe people who have Type II diabetes and are also diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or dementia. The information given during this course will be very practical with useful handouts to begin your personal health journey forward.
