Women’s literary club
The Women’s Literary Club held its meeting at Hill Memorial Church on Friday. President Gae Colligan welcomed our members and our newest member, Holly Puglio, to the meeting.
Bonnie Frisina, Ann Esch, Sue Carns, Judy Kuntz and Karolyn Graves were thanked today for their work on the tea committee.
Harrijane Moore introduced our guest speaker Julie Galbraith. Julie graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in 1995 with a master’s degree in physical therapy. She works for SMART at Bradford Hospital
Julie told us that SMART stands for sports medicine and rehabilitation treatment. The staff works with patients who may have problems in these areas.
You can also help people who have balance problems due to vertigo. We also learned that people often go from SMART across the hall to Upbeat to continue an exercise program.
Finally, we learned that you don’t have to be sent to SMART by a specialist. Your doctor can ask for help there.
At the next club meeting on October 29th, the guest speaker will be Bill Robertson.
