RECOVERY FROM A PAINFUL CHILDHOOD
Friday, August 26th from 6 to 7 p.m.
Vincent J. Felitti, MD speaks on his collaboration with the Center for Disease Control and his ground-breaking research showing that adults do not just get over the
effects of a painful childhood. Traumatic childhood experiences such as emotional/physical abuse or parental drug/alcohol abuse led to adults that are 4,600% more likely to experience drug addiction, 460% more likely to suffer from depression, and have over 260% increased risk for other serious health issues such as lung disease, obesity, diabetes, and coronary heart disease.
SKIN CARE PRODUCT FAIR
Thursday, September 15, 2016 from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.
If you are looking to get an extra “pop” out of your beauty care regime, consider using pharmaceutical grade skin care
products. Pharmaceutical skin care products contain higher concentrations of active ingredients than over the counter skin care products and provide greater and faster benefits to your skin. Estheticians Lindsey Goggin and Domonique Guerra will be hosting a product fair of pharmaceutical grade skin care lines offered by the Department of Cosmetic Services at Kaiser Permanente. You will have an opportunity to ask about the different skin care lines, discover which ones would be a match for your individual skin care needs and have an opportunity to purchase products. This seminar will be held Kaiser Permanente’s Carmel Valley Women’s Center, 3851 Shaw Ridge Road., San Diego, 92130. (This location may not appear correctly on auto-navigation systems.)
