President`s Message

The global pandemic of COVID19 has impacted almost every aspect of our lives. We have had to quickly change the way we live our lives and I suspect while some changes might be temporary, others might become the new norm.

We need to be able to adapt to the current situation and try to reduce disruption to activities that are important and meaningful to us. An example of this is our weekly luncheon meeting.

While we can not meet in person and enjoy the company of one another, the beautiful venue at the Blue Water Grill and the hospitality of our servers, it would be stating the obvious that our weekly meeting is critical for the continuance and growth of our club. Being Rotarians, we will persevere and forge ahead.

I am happy to announce that we will meet virtually next Wednesday, the 25th of March and will continue to do so till it is safe for all of us to be in the same room, without social distancing. 

We will convert the challenge into an opportunity. We will use these virtual meetings to get to know one another better and continue the fellowship. We will therefore have our own club members give vocational or craft talks. We will have announcements and even some social time. As we get more accustomed to virtual meetings, we might even have speakers at our meetings. I will learn, with the rest of the club how this all pans out.

John Barnett is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

Member pictureDr. Nasrin Moghadasian, a chiropractor who owns and founded Body Care Spine and Nerve Center, and Body Care Regenerative Medicine in Redondo Beach, spoke about the game-changing benefits of Regenerative Medicine Therapy.  In addition to explaining what exactly Regenerative Medicine is, she educated us on how it works and who can benefit from this breakthrough in pain relief.  Specifically, she talked about the benefits of stem cell technology.

Dr. Nasrin pointed out the stem cell decline as we age.  Instead she uses what is known as Wharton’s Jelly, or stem cells from the umbilical cord of newborn babies. A baby my have one stem cell per 10,000 cells in its body, by the time humans reach age 60 stem cells decline to one in 250,000 cells. Clearly, she said, "Using youthful stem cells will give a better outcome."
