Join us for a presentation and conversation about the current COVID-19 pandemic. Dr. Dejan Glisovic will address various medical aspects of the pandemic and medical problems it caused as well as other important elements, such as vaccines, immunity, health risks, etc.

Dr. Dejan Glisovic, M.D., medical director, Internal Medicine – Medical Affairs, PRA Health Sciences, is a medical researcher. His medical team conducted a key clinical trial on the drug Remdesivir, the only antiviral drug currently approved for COVID-19 in the U.S. and is also involved in the development of mRNA vaccines against coronavirus SARS-CoV-2. He will talk about his research, various existing treatment options (medications), immunization (vaccination vs. herd immunity), virus transmission and effectiveness of the protective measures (masks, social distancing), testing, emerging virus variants, and some intriguing controversies related to this pandemic.

Summer Yoga | Mondays - Thursdays at 5:00 p.m.

Three Sun Salutations a day keeps the doctor away! Join us for 10 minutes of yoga at 5:00 p.m. Mondays - Thursday this June and July. We will meet by the Cernan Center entrance.

Because Sun Salutations move the body in all directions, it helps to clear the energy pathways.  It is a balancing sequence and each movement energizes a different part of the body.  A series of Sun Salutations alone can be a great cardiovascular exercise benefiting your entire body.  It increases your heart rate, regulates the entire circulatory system, fills your system with fresh surges of oxygenated blood, and eliminates toxins. 

All abilities welcome. Mats are not required.

Stressed? Anxious? Join us for 10 minutes and discover Qigong, a discipline that dates back thousands of years and helps you relax and quiet your mind. If you're into yoga or Tai Chi Chuan, you'll love this!

We meet every Wednesday at 11:00 a.m. by the Cernan Center entrance.
