VIRTUAL Healing Creative Hurts with Kate Chadbourne

Kate Chadbourne EventThe creative life offers great excitement, interest, and reward – but also a unique set of hurts that can break your heart. Whether you create art, music, gardens, poetry, beautiful meals or anything else, you are most warmly invited to attend this online event. As a devoted, lifelong creator and as a teacher of artists and writers, Kate Chadbourne has noticed that there are five main hurts that can derail and even stop us altogether from making what we most want to make. Kate will speak about these five hurts and provide a set of strategies to help navigate them and ultimately, to keep going. Afterwards, we’ll open the floor for questions and comments. Come for the inspiration and good company, and come to remember why it’s worth risking the hurts of the creative life, and why it’s essential to learn to heal them.

Kate Chadbourne is a singer, harper, and storyteller, an award-winning songwriter and poet, a scholar and teacher of Irish language and folklore with a PhD from Harvard, and a beloved performer at venues throughout New England.  She has been honored as a “tradition bearer” in the Revels Salon series and in the Gaelic Roots Concert Series at Boston College, and her music has been featured on NPR’s programs, “Cartalk” and “All Songs Considered.”  She has released four solo CD’s, three collections of poetry, and two books to encourage and support artists, musicians, and creators.  Named as one of “The Most Fascinating People” in Central Massachusetts by the Sentinel and Enterprise Newspaper, Kate is also the founder of The Bardic Academy, a school for writers, musicians, singers, and young scholars.  She brings to her audiences the sounds of the harp, piano, tin whistle, Irish flute, and melodeon, a deep love and knowledge of traditional Irish story, a warm and welcoming presence, and a voice often described as “the voice of an angel.” Connect with her online at www.katechadbourne.com.

Part two of a series of three diabetes education programs. Part 3 will be held on Wednesday, March 17 at 7:00pm.

Ever feel overwhelmed trying to understand what this condition called Type 2 Diabetes is and how to manage it? Don't worry, you’re not the only one. In fact, there are currently 34.2 million people living with Diabetes in the US. The key is to have a basic understanding of what Diabetes is and the important role daily self- management plays in keeping your blood sugars under control. Attend this program, walk away with need to know, simplified strategies to help you manage your Diabetes, achieve your blood sugar goals, and prevent potential, serious long-term complications.

This program is funded by a grant from UMASS Memorial HealthAlliance-Clinton Hospital's Determination of Needs Fund.

Scherrie Keating is a keynote, educational and motivational speaker on the topics of Prediabetes, Type 2 Diabetes and Type 3 Diabetes. 

As a Registered Nurse for over 37 years and a Certified Diabetes Care and Education Specialist, she has cared for thousands of people living with Diabetes and has seen the devastating consequences of chronic elevated blood sugar. After learning Type 2 Diabetes was preventable, she became a CDC, National Diabetes Prevention Program Lifestyle Coach, Certified Dementia Specialist and started Diabetes Kare Consulting, LLC. 

Scherrie’s mission and passion is to make an impact in the prediabetes epidemic, increase awareness, offer risk screening, and help people start their journey to preventing Type 2 Diabetes for life. She uses her personal cancer story and expertise to inspire and provide life changing education, helps people turn that education into action now and offers ongoing support and coaching for lifelong success. She recently created an online school of education and the Diabetes Prevention for Life Program. She offers healthcare professional, community and corporate wellness programs and speaks throughout the US.

VIRTUAL Take Control of Your Diabetes, Live Healthier & Longer

This is the final program in our series of three diabetes education programs.

Did you know that Diabetes is the leading cause of kidney failure, lower limb amputations and adult onset blindness? They result from chronic elevated blood sugars. The good news is you can help decrease your risks of developing these complications by achieving your Diabetes ABC goals and having regular screenings recommended by the American Diabetes Association. Attend this program and start taking control of your Diabetes instead of letting your Diabetes take control of you! It is possible to live a long and healthy life with Type 2 Diabetes.

This program is funded by a grant from UMASS Memorial HealthAlliance-Clinton Hospital's Determination of Needs Fund.
