This is an example page. It’s different from a blog post because it will stay in one place and will show up in your site navigation (in most themes). Most people start with an About page that introduces them to potential site visitors. It might say something like this:

Hi there! I’m a bike messenger by day, aspiring actor by night, and this is my website. I live in Los Angeles, have a great dog named Jack, and I like piña coladas. (And gettin’ caught in the rain.)

…or something like this:

The XYZ Doohickey Company was founded in 1971, and has been providing quality doohickeys to the public ever since. Located in Gotham City, XYZ employs over 2,000 people and does all kinds of awesome things for the Gotham community.

The Boonshoft School of Medicine:  Past, Present and Future

The Boonshoft School of Medicine graduated its first class in 1980.  It has seen many changes over the years, including a name change from the Wright State University School of Medicine to its current Wright State Boonshoft School of Medicine.  It has seen its class size increase from 32 to over 120.  A further increase to 150 is in consideration.

The Boonshoft School of Medicine is proud of its role in the Miami Valley community and as well of its graduates that have assumed health care leadership roles throughout the country.  Let’s take a brief look back, then explore the current role of BSOM in the local healthcare community and discuss what the future holds for the BSOM.

The Hardest Conversation:  Advanced Care Planning

What is advanced care planning? Why do I need to have a “conversation” if I already have my legal documents completed? Starting a conversation about end-of-life plans can be difficult, but it is an important step in ensuring individuals’ wishes are heard. Through Decide to be Heard, the community has access to resources for having advanced care planning conversations and the opportunity to schedule a conversation with a trained facilitator. These facilitated conversations help people complete advance directives that are inclusive of personal values and beliefs and communicate documented values and beliefs with their family members, loved ones, and health care providers. The program is working to develop innovative partnerships with area community organizations, healthcare education programs and businesses to continue to grow this important conversation!

Club Assembly

On Monday, November 8, for the first time in many years, we will be holding our Club Assembly. The purpose of holding a Club Assembly is to inform the membership about the status of the club, our membership, finances, and also gauge how we are doing as a club. At this meeting, we will also break out into small groups (rooms) as we did last summer, where we will seek your input about the club’s structure, our meetings, programming, and membership. Your participation is vital to this Assembly, so please plan on attending via Zoom next Monday!

Polio and Its Late Effects

Phil Jenkins is a Polio survivor.  In his talk, he will describe the initial onset of Polio, that the virus attacks the brain but then spills over into the spinal cord where it attacks the anterior horn cells in the spine, thus causing paralysis in the limbs.  He will also describe the Late Effects of Polio, often called Post Polio Syndrome.  And point out that Polio survivors, as a population, tend to be Type A, overachievers, as compared to the general population, and I speculate as to why that may be.  He will also show pictures of some famous Polio survivors, some of which may be surprises to most people.  Considering the efforts of Rotary International in attempting to eradicate Polio globally, my hope is that this talk will be of great interest to the Rotary Club in downtown Dayton.
