Virtual “Lunch n Learn” Educational Workshops

Two times each month we offer lectures and presentations on a variety of topics related to issues of aging and the care-giving of the aging. Speakers include medical professionals and other agency and service providers in the local area.

Come join us – knowledge is power!

The upcoming schedule is as follows:

 

Thursday, January 21st @ 12 pm 

co-hosted by Chester Public Library

“Immunization Update: Focus on the COVID-19 Vaccines”

Presented by:

Cathy Segal

Address the questions all of us are asking – what are the side effects, who is getting it and when will I be eligible to get the shot, what if I have bad allergies, should I get it if I have already recovered from COVID, etc. What is the deal with mutations from UK and South Africa? What happened with the supply chain? COVID-19 is worse than the flu – there are long-term changes seen in the heart, kidneys and even the brain in people who have survived the infection. Why are the monoclonal antibody treatments being underused? After the presentation, your questions are always welcome.

Catherine Segal is a retired registered pharmacist and pharmaceutical industry executive who has been a board member of the SRC for the past 4 years and has presented a number of health and nutrition talks. While she will speak of vaccines from companies she worked for in the past, she has no current conflict of interest on this topic.

Lunch ‘n’ Learn is sponsored by the Senior Resource Center and is free and open to all.
