Presented by Trudy Gahlinger of the  Calgary Buddhist Temple

  In this workshop, we will explore the fascinating world of the gut microbiome: the bacteria and other microbes that live in our gut and help us to digest food, synthesize vitamins, and fight off infection. We’ll discuss the healthy foods and lifestyle behaviors that promote optimal gut health, as well as the gut-busting factors in our environment. The focus will be on effective, inexpensive steps that we can take immediately to start creating better health for our future.

An informative presentation by Katharina Zacharias of the Calgary Kerby Centre



It is important to talk about elder abuse, how unacceptable it is and to let people know help is available. If someone discloses abuse to you, you see signs or if you suspect abuse, it is your responsibility to do something about it. Please join this informative presentation by Katharina Zacharias of the Calgary Kerby Centre who is passionate about raising awareness of elder abuse because it is seriously lacking in our society.

Let’s advocate for seniors and learn about facts, signs, prevention and resources.
