There are so many types of social media at our disposal. Which ones make sense for a non-profit to use? Should we focus on just a few or get involved with many? Which ones should EGG be taking more advantage of? These and many questions will be explored in our Jan. 19, 2017 session. You are welcome to join and participate in the presentation and help forge a better social media trail for EGG. Read More

EGG ended 2016 on a lively note with a presentation about The Conversation our Society needs to have to promote sustainability. To continue the energetic exchange on this subject, the Jan 12, 2017, EGG presentation is going explore:
- The basics of communicating everyday opportunities to share sustainability info with others we meet in our daily travels.
- Group Interaction will round out the session.
To help you share the “golden nuggets” of sustainable wisdom you have with more people in your everyday travels, please join EGG for a dynamic presentation and audience participation.
When you are out and about in places such as restaurants, book stores, and other public places where you may see little children, do you ever wonder what their future will be like when they are older? If you have children or grandchildren are you concerned about what life has in store for them? Will they inherit a planet that is livable, with beautiful forests and majestic oceans? With clean land, water, and air? Or will they live tortured lives due to all of the accumulated pollution that has been created? To explore this big topic, the Dec 8, 2016, presentation will include an overview of the history of human pollution which reaches back thousands of years, a brief look at human population growth, an overview of the pollution we create today, and one of the next important steps that we must all take.
To find out what this next step is, please join us for this important EGG presentation.
A Review of Second Half of 2016 EGG Activities By Rod Kirk
Now that 2016 has passed, we can reflect upon our successes that occured during the second half of the year.

We will also acknowledge the various members and volunteers that helped keep EGG afloat.

Low-level visible or near infrared light has therapeutic uses. It can improve tissue repair, reduce pain and inflammation wherever the beam is applied. Called photo-biomodulation, it has been used for many years on sports injuries, arthritic joints, neuropathic pain syndromes, back and neck pain. Over 300 randomized clinical trials have been published, half of which are on pain.
First we shall watch an overview of photo-biomodulation and low level light therapy presented by James of Thor LLLT at the United Nations Global Health Impact Forum. Then he will give an introduction to the treatment for Age related Macular Degeneration (AMD).
Next will be a groundbreaking webinar on photo-biomodulation that aired during the World Summit of Integrative Medicine 2015. Dr Lew Lim and leading scientists from Harvard Medical School and Boston University School of Medicine, share their insights about the positive effects of low level light therapy (photo-biomodulation) on the body and brain at the cellular level.
