Changing the Face of Medicine Film Screening & Panel
Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine – When: Friday, March 23, 6 p.m. Where: Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine 525 Pine Street, Scranton, PA 18509 For our Diversity Task Force film on Friday, March 23 at 6 p.m., which coincides with Women’s History Month, we will screen the documentary "Black Women in Medicine." The documentary honors Black women around the country who are doctors working diligently in all facets of medicine. The documentary – which highlights a former U.S. Surgeon General and the first Black female orthopedic surgeon, among many others – tells the stories of women who have persevered in medical fields and overcome a number of barriers linked to race, gender and resources. "Black Women in Medicine" presents images and stories that counter the pervasive negative images and stereotypes of Black women commonly depicted by the media and in popular culture. The film also addresses the nation-wide demographic disparity of minority physicians while paying tribute to the successes of pioneers in the field and showcases recent graduates. After the screening, we will host a panel of women who will discuss the film’s themes and share their own experiences as accomplished women with careers in the medical field. This event is free and open to the public! Join us at Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine, 525 Pine Street, Scranton, PA 18509. Questions? Contact Charles Bay at email@example.com.

Presented by Toyota of Scranton and sponsored by United Gilsonite Laboratories, Gerrity's Supermarkets and Wells Fargo. Supported by Lackawanna County and the PA Council on the Arts. Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it's no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions - Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness. The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley's mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley's main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.

Monthly Book Club
Nearme yoga – Join us for our first monthly Book Club meeting. There are so many reasons to join a book club, starting with the fact that it's a great way to be introduced to new books, some of which you might not have read otherwise. Book clubs push you to read more by holding you to deadlines, they give you an opportunity to meet new people, and they force you out of your comfort zone and compel you to form your own opinions and express them with the other members of the group. Didn't I tell you book clubs are the best? Our first book will be The Universe Has Your Back by Gabrielle Bernstein. It is a quick read so we will do a full book discussion. Meet in the Café at 11am ready to share some of your favorite parts of the book. We will be meeting monthly.

Backyard Ale House – Orval Day 2018 is Saturday, March 24, 2018 #OrvalDay (Orval Day 2019 wll be Saturday, March 23, 2019) On March 26th, 2016, and March 25, 2017, devotees of Orval Trappist Ale – and even some folks who hadn’t tried it yet – convened upon their favorite bar to celebrate one of the world’s unique and highly-respected beers. Orval was the first Brett beer to land on US shores, and has become the favorite beer for many star American brewers. ( "Brett" - brettanomyces - is a yeast variety that adds appetizing, sharp acidity and dryness.) Orval sells one beer, brewed to exquisite perfection within the walls of Notre Dame d’Orval Monastery in Belgium. It’s delicious when it leaves the brewery, but also evolves in the bottle for five years or more. We had over 150 accounts participate in the March 2016 Orval Day, and about 12,000 bottles were sold; Orval 2017 was even bigger than 2017! Thanks to all who participated. Orval Day 2018 will be Saturday March 24, 2018. For each bottle of Orval sold in the US in March 2018, MdV will donate fifty cents to MAP International, providing lifesaving medicines to people in need around the world. A one-dollar cash donation to MAP provides $80 worth of medicine!

Nearme yoga – Join Chelsea Manganaro on March 24th from 2-6pm for a Workshop on Advanced Adjustments. We will go over 10 different adjustments on different body types. Hands-On Adjustments are a profound way to aid students in their practice. Whether the adjustment is to deepen, align or relax a pose, or simply a blissful treat, a non-verbal communication involving ethics, confidence and trust takes place. Skillful adjustments communicate clearly, are firm or gentle as situations require but always offer deeper insights into the form and essence of the practice. Students will learn to analyze and read bodies in order to guide the appropriate method of assisting, learn a variety of adjustments in key asanas, experience how different body types respond to similar adjustments.Participants will also learn how to protect themselves from injury. Through this hands-on experience, participants will gain confidence and skill to hone their teaching skills so that adjustments are executed with clarity and intention. Investment for this workshop is $50 For prior TT $30
