Open House

Top -openhouse

As I had mentioned last week, my friend Sarah landed a job at the National Center for Integrative Medicine in Joliet, Ill. The official ribbon cutting of the new facility was last Wednesday and it couldn't have been more perfect! The facility is state-of-the-art with all new equipment and treatment rooms. To top it all off, they served a gluten-free breakfast for everyone to enjoy! The alternative health care wing turned out beautifully and we are all so happy for Sarah and her new job!  

Julie Martin, ND, our newest clinician here on campus, attended the open house as the keynote speaker of the ribbon cutting ceremony. Dr. Martin stated that what this facility is providing for patients is exactly what health care needs in the future. One place, full of a variety of health professionals, all ready to work together to help regain health for their patients. She also spoke on the future of naturopathic medicine and how our profession fits into the current medical model. She commended Rao Kilaru, MD, the facility owner, for helping to change the future of medical practice to a more holistic practice.  

I could not imagine working in such a beautiful space and wish the medical group much success in the future!

Family in Town

I know it seems like I am always having family coming to town, but that's because I have been! My boyfriend's brother came to visit us from Boston for the weekend and we took full advantage of the opportunity to go out on the town. We went to my favorite comedy show in the world, The Cupid Players, at the IO Theater in Wrigleyville. No matter how many times I see the show, I laugh just as hard as the first time! I recommend it to anyone entertaining family and friends when they come to town!

Women's Health Seminar

In addition to hosting company, treating patients in clinic and celebrating Sarah's grand opening, I attended a Women's Health Seminar put on by Metagenics. The seminar was a great review of the biochemistry behind our natural therapies and provided many research articles on the various modalities we frequently employ. Although the seminar was long and took up my entire weekend, it was free to students, which is very rare! You have to take advantage of all the freebees being a student has to offer, because once you graduate you are paying full price!

Next week, I plan to finish my patient numbers at clinic… YEAH!!!!! So cross your fingers and your eyes for me!!
