LIVE WELL, AGE WELL
Discover Meditation: An Intro to Self-Reflection & Cleansing Meditation
Join Beverly Dawson, President of the Glenview History Center, for an engaging lecture on the history of Camp Skokie Valley. Located in Glenview’s Harms Woods, the camp housed about 2,000 young men working for the Conservation Civilian Corps, whose mission was the construction of the Skokie Lagoons. Since the CCC program was discontinued in 1942, the camp has transformed several times: from housing a Military Police Battalion, a German POW camp, and finally a Girl Scout camp.
Dr. Pablo Gejman, NorthShore University HealthSystem, discusses precision medicine—an innovative approach for disease treatment and prevention that takes into account individual variability in genes, environment, and lifestyle. He also shares information on the “All of Us Research Program,” a partnership with the National Institutes of Health that may lead to insights into new medical treatments.
