and discussion on meditation

S

pring is upon us and it is hard to believe we have only a few meetings and events
left before our year ends and the reins are turned over to the incoming Board of
Directors. Members of the Berks County Medical Society Alliance have been
participating in a year full of events focusing on health and wellness for the physician
family. From meditation to eating organically, we have enjoyed learning about the
benefits of taking care of our own bodies and minds, as well as caring for the ones
we love.
In the fall, at the home of Kalpa Solanki, we listened to Educator and Wellness
Coach Greg Schweitzer discuss the health benefits of meditation in his talk, "Rx for
Stress and Family Health: Effortless Meditation." It was enlightening to learn how
stress can impact your overall health and how we can combat the stress in just a few
moments of peace each day. Amanda Abboud also hosted our group at her home for
a discussion on "Choosing Wellness" given by Courtney Shober, Certified Integrative
Health Coach and Education Coordinator at Farmhouse Kitchen in West Reading.
Not only did Courtney discuss eating organically and how the foods we choose to put
into our bodies can affect our overall health, she also debunked some "conventional
wisdom" about nutrition, helped us rethink what a meal looks like, and talked about
getting children involved in the kitchen. We were also lucky enough to sample
delicious food from the Farmhouse Kitchen while we listened. We ended the year with
a lovely holiday brunch, our members' favorite yearly event, hosted by Allison Wilson.

Also, we would like to graciously thank everyone who contributed to this year's
holiday card fundraiser. We raised over $12,500 to donate back to our community!
Each year the Alliance uses the holiday card donations to give to local charities that
support medically-related issues and to fund scholarships for those beginning their
education in a medical field.
Our Health Project Committee has been hard at work preparing for this year's
health project, Disconnecting to Connect: Addressing Anxiety and Other Mental
Health Concerns of the iGeneration, on Thursday, April 5th from 8:30am - 2:00pm,
at the Inn of Reading. Online registration is available at berkcms.org/events/healthproject-2018. Be sure to register today!
