Over the weekend Luis, Jade, and I enjoyed going to Lilacia Park Lighting Ceremony and Jingle Bell Jubilee event in downtown Lombard.
I'm going to be starting a new series on my blog that recognizes and praises different departments and people who keep NUHS running on a daily basis. These are areas of the university that tend to be overlooked, but they are vital to the culture and environment at NUHS. To kick off this series, I'd like to recognize and praise the Facilities and Grounds staff.
Last week Thursday, I attended a screening of the documentary, “Just One Drop” that explores the most controversial system of medicine — homeopathy. The NUHS Homeopathy Club did a great job getting the screening closer to campus, in Warrenville, Illinois, instead of Rockford, Illinois, where it was originally scheduled.
October is turning out to be a busy month! It started off with the nasal release technique course I went to earlier this month, a thyroid seminar I went to over the weekend, and coming up next weekend I'll present my labor and delivery story for the Illinois Homeopathic Medical Association meeting. The weekend after that we're celebrating my grandma’s 90th birthday!
When I attended the Essentials of Acute and Chronic Prescribing homeopathy course in Montreal in May 2016 and 2017, the instructor showed us a technique that he uses on many patients called bilateral nasal specific, also known as nasal release technique. I wanted to learn how to do it, but couldn't find anyone at NUHS trained in it, so I got a group of students together who also wanted to learn and found an instructor from Pittsburgh to teach us!
The city of Chicago has many fun places and events to offer. Once in a while, I make my way into the city to take advantage of it all! My father-in-law and I went to the Shedd Aquarium over the weekend. All the museums have certain days throughout the year where Illinois residents can enter free of charge, and we got in on one of those days.
