Outgoing Chapter President Archie McKee introduced Dr. Alhan Kuhn who spoke to us about Natural Medicine. She spoke of old traditional Chinese medicine versus her holistic approach. She emphasizes prevention through healthy eating and wellness training. After answering questions, she led us in some simple Qi Gong exercises. 

Thank you, Dr. Kuhn. 

Door prizes were won by new member Tom Griffiths and our guest speaker. 

A new Board was approved by the membership. There are two openings if new members are interested. And membership renewal is underway. New members welcome.

Archie acted as emcee.
