Caring for your largest Organ... Your Skin!

2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Northmont
Meeting Room
In the US there are only 10 chemicals banned from skin and hair care products. That is 990 less than the European standard! Isn't that SCARY! What are we putting on our skin and hair? There are products that may cost $100's of dollars and still be bad for you. Come to a DIY class where we will talk about all natural essential oils, what they are, and how you can reduce your toxin-load. You will be making a skin care regimen to take home that is beneficial for your skin and costs a fraction of the price of store bought products!

The “Eyes” Have It!

10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Northmont
Council Chambers
While half of all blindness is preventable,  the growth in the aging population and the increased incidence of diabetes, the prevalence of eye disease and vision loss is becoming an increasingly significant public and personal health concern. The number of Ohio seniors affected by aging eye diseases is expected to double over the next 30 years as the Baby Boomer generation ages. At this workshop, participants will learn about common eye diseases which can be prevented or slowed with early detection, including macular degeneration, cataracts, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy. Certified Adult Vision Screeners will conduct free vision screenings following the presentation.
