Bio-Medical Approaches Study Group @ The Gathering Place
May 14 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

The Bio-Medical Study Group is a group of family and community members who find it inspiring, helpful, and personally rewarding to talk with each other about our own experiences and share new information all about optimal health, balance and well-being. We think about wellness in terms of food and nutrition, making sure sensory needs are met, figuring out mindful and conscious approaches, or looking at what recent research can tell us about medications, seizures, digestive issues and more.

Our conversation focuses on the whole person and how people may respond with more or less sensitivity to their environment, including diet and nutrition, brain coherence, sensory integration issues, the calmness or agitation of those around them, and more.

The group has been meeting monthly for over a year and is open and welcomes new participants! We typically meet at The Gathering Place (20-850 King St. W, Oshawa), the second Friday of each month at 10am.  Please RSVP your attendance to jklees@dafrs.com so that we can plan a successful morning.
