Food and Mood - A Discussion About Diet/ADHD, CHADD of Princeton-Mercer County

Sunday November 12, 2017
2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

Parents of children with ADHD are likely to observe poor focus, mental fatigue, mood swings, and sleep issues. For Adults in relationships with ADHD loved ones, the same symptoms exist. Our Speaker, Dorothy Mullen will be sharing the foundational message of the Suppers Program: The brain is typically the first organ to respond to poor nutrition. Therefore, how a person feels, thinks, and attends is data which can be used to sort out which foods the child or adult needs for focus and for life. Join Dorothy Mullen and learn about nutritional harm reduction and how to get the family on board for eating foods that improve mood, behavior, and attention.

Dorothy Mullen is the Founder of The Suppers Programs, a non-profit organization operating in central New Jersey since 2005. She has a Master's degree in counseling from The College of New Jersey, where her focus was on addictions and recovery. Dorothy is committed to finding solutions to some of the most serious and costly health problems facing Americans: health challenges related to diet and lifestyle. Her interest is in blood sugar and how it relates to mood chemistry and addictive behaviors. Dorothy is also dedicated to garden-based education. She was the garden artist in residency at Riverside School for 13 years and continues to teach gardening workshops in her home garden. She is committed to spreading the message of diet and lifestyle changes that can delay, prevent, or reverse health and mental health problems that are biochemically related to blood sugar regulation and poor mood chemistry.

Origin of the Jews
November 12

4:00 pm

The Jewish Center Princeton

435 Nassau Street, Princeton

 

 

Steven Weitzman speaks about his new book “The Origin of the Jews”

Jews have one of the longest continuously recorded histories of any people in the world, but what do we actually know about their (our) origins?

While many think the answer to this question can be found in the Bible, others look to archaeology or genetics. Some skeptics have even sought to debunk the very idea that Jews have a common origin.

In his book, Steven Weitzman takes a learned and lively look at what we know-or think we know-about where the Jewish people came from, when they arose, and how they came to be.

Steven Weitzman is the Abraham M. Ellis Professor of Hebrew and Semitic Languages and Literatures at the University of Pennsylvania.

Open to the Community!
