ALMA Chicago Health Seminar

We had a very successful event co-sponsored by CLC (Chicago Lebanese Club) .  The health seminar was attended by 54 people of all ages at Maza Restaurant on Sunday November 13 at 2:30pm.  Topics discussed ranged from children's emotional health, pediatric health maintenance, and women's health maintenance.  Many thanks to the speakers who sacrificed their time and weekend to educate the Lebanese community on such important topics related to their family's health.  Pictures from the event will be available soon on our updated website www.almamater.org under Chicago local chapter section.  The speakers were Dr. Susan Gervers, Dr. George Farah, and myself.  We hope to do more of these educational events (at least annually or biannually) to give back to our community.
