Free Presentation on Complementary and Alternative Therapies
October 4, 2007
The Healthy Community Coalition (HCC) and the Ben Franklin Center at Franklin Memorial Hospital invite the public to attend a free community presentation called Beyond Traditional Health Care: Alternative and Complementary Therapies Available in Greater Franklin County, on Wednesday, October 24, from 6 – 7:30 p.m. in the Chisholm Room at Franklin Memorial Hospital.
A number of alternative forms of therapy will be discussed and demonstrated including, but not limited to: Reiki, massage, hypnotism, emotional freedom technique and breathing for stress management. Presenters will be Audrey Brown, Meredith Kendall, Sara Mulvey, Dawn Jepson, Jackie Lizotte, and Joyce Murphy.
According to Lisa Laflin, Community Building Coordinator at Healthy Community Coalition, “Results from the Community Health Visioning process conducted last year indicate that there is significant interest in knowing more about alternative and complementary therapies in greater Franklin County. This is an opportunity to meet that need and determine other forms of alternative and complementary therapies community members may be interested in.”
There will be refreshments and free giveaways. Childcare is also available upon advance request.
The presentation is a part of the new Six O’clock Series, a collaborative effort of the HCC and the Ben Franklin Center at Franklin Memorial Hospital. The series features monthly presentations on timely health topics and provides information on how to connect to community resources relevant to the topic. Presentations will be held throughout greater Franklin County. Upcoming topics include working with assistive devices to support children’s health needs, and managing diabetes over the holidays.
