慈濟腎友會及樂齡園地六月份聚會

06/17/2018-06/24/2018
2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
慈濟北加州分會志業園區
San Jose  CA

北加州慈濟腎友會將於二○一八年六月十七日星期日下午二點至五點,在慈濟基金會北加州分會聖荷西志業園區舉辦每兩月一次的腎友會聚會。本月的腎友會聚會將由任職聖荷西山谷醫學中心的腎臟專科醫師羅建剛主講〝人工腎臟的最新資訊”。羅建剛醫師的專業與愛心,使他多年來深受腎友們的信賴與歡迎。

羅醫師曾在過去數年的腎友會聚會中談到人工腎臟的研究,腎友們反應熱烈。如果人工腎臟研發成功,那許多等待腎臟移植的腎友們將立刻可以結束漫長的等待,而得到腎臟移植,恢復正常、健康的生活。這次羅醫師就是要來跟大家介紹人工腎臟的最新研究進展,讓大家對人工腎臟的期待往前跨一步。這種人工腎臟不需電池,用血壓的力量。人工腎臟分二個部份。一部分是一個過濾器,另外一部份是用活的腎臟細胞,來過濾其他有毒物質。

慈濟在灣區所舉辦的腎友會今年已進入第十三年, 許多居住在舊金山、東灣及南灣的腎友們都非常期待每兩月一次的溫馨聚會。 腎友及其家人們都能在腎友會上獲得重要的切身資訊,如醫療新知、日常生活的照料、 飲食營養、 社會福利、 醫療保險及換腎相關事宜等等, 許多腎友們需要但卻苦無中文資訊, 往往在慈濟腎友會獲得解答。

除了腎友會,六月二十四日星期日下午二至五時在聖荷西園區有場樂齡園地的聚會。此次聚會邀請到享譽灣區的吳奇中醫博士來談樂齡的養生之道。吳醫師服務灣區逾二十年,醫術高超,為人慈悲謙虛。吳醫師將以中醫的角度,為大家講解中老年內分泌變化對身體造成的影響及如何因應、保養,並為大家回答相關的問題。

樂齡園地是針對嬰兒潮前後的華裔同胞為服務對象,精心為大家準備這個年齡層關心的健康養生、保險及財務規劃等的最新資訊。人變老,不是從第一道皺紋、第一根白髮開始,而是從放棄自己那一刻開始。」日本作家村上春樹這段話,鼓勵大家健康老化要靠自己去實踐。做到四動,動腦、運動、互動、感動,並且注意加強好的飲食、運動、生活習慣及人際關係,如此必能有尊嚴並優雅地迎接未來的歲月。

慈濟腎友會及樂齡園地的聚會及服務均是免費且以華語進行,服務不分性別及宗教,歡迎大家踴躍參加。慈濟北加州分會志業園區地址在2355 Oakland Road, San Jose, CA 95131。如需更多資訊,請電(408) 457-6969查詢。
