    Nancy Patterson will discuss the Emotional, Intellectual and Mental Aspects of Graves’ Disease.

    The luncheon speaker is George Hood who is the Guinness World Record Holder for spinning. How many of you had a hard time getting your head off the pillow this morning? It took 4 snooze alarms for me to get up. I want to know how George does it. He has Graves’ disease and broke a world record.

    We are still awaiting details about one more speaker and her topic.
