WC Foundation Kicks Off A New Workshop Program
We're happy to announce that we've added workshops to the services we provide for our teens and their families.
The first of our daylong workshops was held in June in West LA for our WCLA and UCLA clinic patients. We offered Iyengar yoga, meditation and mindfulness practice in the morning led by Beth Sternlieb. The Westwood Whole Foods store sponsored our lunch. (Leftovers were donated to the homeless.) The afternoon session gave teens the chance to really meet and connect with a support session facilitated by Dr. Diana Taylor. Parents were invited to attend an afternoon meeting with Dr. Samantha Levy. The discussion ranged from education to support topics around pediatric chronic pain.
The feedback from teens, parents and practitioners was incredibly positive. We are very pleased to expand our program to include opportunities for our patients and their families to connect with others who truly understand what it means to live with chronic pain. Sharing experiences,life plans and pain management techniques brings hope and a renewed sense of optimism.
This event and future workshops are sponsored by the Whole Child Foundation with help from our team of practitioners and community partners such as Whole Foods. Our next workshop takes place in August and we're looking forward to another day that proves to be just as beneficial, fun and successful.
Please direct inquiries about future workshops to email@example.com. We are currently looking for places to hold the workshops and lunch donations. All donations, including in-kind contributions are tax-deductible.
Check back soon for more updates!
