Dr Cynthia Shaft-Toll DC will share health benefits of the gluten-free lifestyle : how and where to shop for gluten-free items, how to and where are the best gluten-free restaurants, how to cook for holidays and special events.

Local high school student Maha Zahid recognized that when entering high school many of her friends were struggling with the application of basic science concepts. As a result, she developed a science enrichment program geared towards middle school students (grades 6th- 8th) who strive to get a head start in their high school science experience and gain more knowledge of innovative careers options in the field of medicine and engineering. This program will focus on fundamental science concepts including chemistry, biochemistry, cells, human body systems and physics that are beneficial for students to know before entering high school. With every concept students will complete hands on activities that will enrich their learning experience. This is an 8 week program that will run every Friday from 4:00-5:45 PM. The first session takes place on March 7 and the last is on April 18. Registration begins February 21 and space is limited!
