May meeting recap

Thanks to everyone who attended our May 3rd meeting! The room was full (we promise to try and get Swedish to give us a bigger meeting space for our June & August meetings) and it was great to see so many interested in hydrotherapy! Thanks to Diana & Rick, ClaudDeen, Tom, Bob & Betty, Cathy, John & Sheila, Anne, Corrinne, and a BIG welcome to Shelly & George who traveled all the way from Pueblo to their first meeting!!!

Our speaker at the meeting was Barbara Douglas, Membership Coordinator and Community Healthcare Communicator for the Shalom Wellness Center (J. Leonard Levy Family Wellness Center).

Shalom Wellness focuses on Continuing Care – from fitness through skilled care such as hospice, nursing care, etc. Barbara spoke mostly about the adult-only recuperative and wellness programs available in Shalom’s pool room.
