Complementary & Alternative Medicine ~ How Can It Benefit You? (Rescheduled from July) Join the Outreach Team from Merrimon Family Chiropractic for the first in a series of presentations looking at various types of therapies and treatment options, that can be used alongside traditional medicine, to help you improve your health. They will be focusing on a broad range of symptoms and conditions such as fatigue, neuropathy, balance, depression, diabetes, and high blood pressure, to name a few. Please sign up in the Lobby to indicate your interest! Wednesday, August 16th @ 3:30 in the Roof Garden! Future presentations will be on Aromatherapy, Acupressure, Acupuncture, Homeopathy, Hypnosis, and Healthy Eating.

Early Screening for Lung Cancer (Rescheduled from July) Come learn about the new Low Dose CT Screening Program through Mission Health. LDCT screening for the detection of early stage lung cancer was shown to reduce mortality by 25%.  When lung cancer is detected at an early stage, the five-year survival rate increases approximately 10-fold. Without LDCT screening, lung cancer is usually not found until a person develops symptoms.  By then, the cancer is usually more advanced, and more difficult to treat. Medicare, Medicaid, and other private insurance will cover this screening. Come learn more about this early detection screening: Tuesday, August 22nd @ 3:00 in the Roof Garden. All smokers should attend!

Drawing Class w/ Sara This group will continue to meet at 6:00 pm, on Thursdays, in the Roof Garden throughout August.

Service Coordinator Update  I will be out of the office from August 28th through September 4th. I will be working off site, and checking messages, from September 5th – September 8th. If you have a building related issue, as always, take those to Janet Howard. If you have a service related issue that can not wait until I return, please contact Cyndy Wallhausser, Service Coordinator at Vanderbilt Apartments, 253-8024. Roof Garden Reservations – See Janet during my absence to reserve the space.

Solar Eclipse Visible in Asheville on August 21st @ 2:37 pm The Roof Garden will be accessible after MANNA has been cleaned up, approx. 1:30 pm. The only safe way to view the eclipse, or partial eclipse, is through special-purpose solar filters, such as “eclipse glasses” or handheld solar viewers. Homemade filters or ordinary sunglasses, even very dark ones, are not safe for looking at the Sun. You can go on-line to order glasses, or there are vendors in the area who also sell them. For more safety information you can go to https://eclipse.aas.org/eye-safety/eyewear-viewers.
