    Event Description:

    "What is stress and how can I better manage it? Women are twice as stressed as men, yet women play the role of mother, care giver, wife, employee, entrepreneur, chauffeur, person chef, maid, and more. How can we juggle all of these roles and still keep our sanity? Dr. Emily Brown of Bear River Chiropractic will give you tips on how to do it all without compromising your own health.

    Dr. Emily Brown (previously Emily Foster) grew up in Charlevoix, MI. Upon graduating from Charlevoix High School she went on to Albion College to pursue a degree in Biology with a minor in psychology and a concentration in neuroscience.


    While at Albion, she knew she wanted to pursue a career in the health care field because she loved helping people. She met and shadowed a chiropractor and she fell in love with the profession. As someone who had suffered from migraine headaches, she found that chiropractic care quickly freed her from the limitations and pain she had been suffering from. Due to her newfound passion, she applied to Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, IA and by October of 2012 she was a chiropractic student.

    After graduating with her Doctorate of Chiropractic, Dr. Emily was able to move home to Northern Michigan. She is happy to be back with her family. Dr. Emily also serves on the Foundation Board for NCMC, Thriving Petoskey Committee, and the YMCA Fundraising Committee.

    Location:

    The luncheon is at North Central Michigan College's Iron Horse Cafe.  The lunch buffet will include tuna salad, chicken salad, tossed salad with assorted dressings, rolls and dessert. Drinks will include coffee, lemonade and iced tea.

    Woven Together: The Fiber Work of Sherri Smith @CTAC Woven Together: The Fiber Work of Sherri Smith @CTAC

    Crooked Tree Arts Center
    Aug. 25 - Nov. 17

    For nearly 50 years, fiber artist Sherri Smith has been impacting and influencing the field of fiber arts around the world. Smith’s artwork came to prominence after being included in the 1969 groundbreaking exhibition, Wall Hangings, at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. In addition to exhibiting her work in museums and galleries across the US and abroad, Smith went on to develop the University of Michigan Stamps School of Art and Design’s fibers program. Now, after four decades of dedicated service to the University, Smith will retire from the Stamps School at the end of the Winter 2018 semester.

    Smith’s exhibition features work from her most recent series, Astronomy, which is concerned with science and - at times - mathematics. Inspired by NASA images made by space missions and telescopes, old astronomy drawings, and lunar maps, Smith’s work is a celebration of our ultimate explorations.
