Get up to date information on DNA Cancer and Pharmaceutical Screenings Debbie Hilliard, HMA Genetics Tuesday, June 18, 10:30 to 11:30 a.m., 111 There are many different causes of cancer, but generally just three different types of cancer: hereditary, familial and sporadic. • Hereditary cancer is caused by an inherited genetic mutation. It is typical to see a recurring pattern of cancer across 2-3 generations. • Familial cancer occurs when there is more cancer in a family than is expected by chance. Familial cancer may have a hereditary component that has not yet been identified. • Sporadic cancer occurs by chance, meaning there is no known cause. For example, aging or environmental factors may contribute to sporadic cancers. Pharmacogenomics testing may be warranted when: •

Taking multiple medications may increase the risk of having an adverse effect.

Taking a medication and not receiving the expected outcome.

Experiencing side effects.

This testing also shows how patients metabolize medications, therefore, allowing more accurate and finely-tuned therapies for the patient. Join us for this free, informative talk!

June 5: Healthy Living to Prevent Chronic Disease June 12: Mindful & Healthy Eating June 19: Physical Activity, Stress Management & Motivation

Everyone thinks they know how to communicate. Would it surprise you to know that communication is the least understood topic especially in family and couples therapy and causes more misunderstandings? This can easily be taught. If the original learning was not especially effective, the good news it can easily be changed.

This series of three classes are taught by Kim Barry, Scripps Memorial Hospital Encinitas Diabetes Health Educator.

Michele has developed what she calls her “GATE” method to discuss and teach healthy communication in a simple,


understandable way to her clients and now to you. By learning the tools and techniques she will teach you, you will find it to be effective no matter what situation you find yourself in (even the most difficult kinds). This type of teaching can help interpersonally and professionally. Once learned, you can easily pass it on to your children and grandchildren.

Instructor Spotlight

Volunteer of the Month

Social Dance Instructor, Abigail Astley

John Hsueh

Abigail’s earliest memories of dance are of her parents encouraging Abigail and her sister to dance around the living room while the eight-track played “Pleasant Valley Sunday.”

Every Tuesday, rain or shine, John looks forward to his time at the Carlsbad Senior Center. Six years ago, John and his family moved to Carlsbad from New Jersey. He loves the beauty and openness of Carlsbad, as well as the vast number of public parks and proximity to the ocean, tennis courts and gym. It is a perfect fit for him!

Later in life, college and work became her primary focus. Abigail first experienced Swing Dance with a friend who was kind enough to let her step on his toes while she mastered the patterns. She was hooked. What a fun and uplifting way to enjoy an evening! Abigail went on to take many classes in Swing, Tango, Salsa, Jitterbug and Contra dance. Along the way, she noticed that many people would only take one dance class and then never return. When she ran into them at the supermarket and asked why they stopped, the answer was always the same - “It was too intimidating.” Abigail realized that there are many people out there that would love to dance. Unfortunately, they give up before they learn enough to feel confident on the dance floor. This led her to develop the Social Dance class. Here, students learn to dance in a fun and welcoming environment. Basic patterns that are commonly seen on the dance floor are practiced with a partner until confidence is built. As a former college professor and dance instructor, she believes that dancing is one of the best ways to build friendships, raise one’s spirits and stay physically healthy. As she says to her students, “Remember, all the best dancers started where you are now.”

Ready to dance?

Register for “Social Dance” in June and all summer long! Fri 9:45 – 11:45 a.m. Senior Center Tue 7 – 8:15 p.m. Harding Community Center

John and wife, Linah, will be celebrating their 23rd wedding anniversary this October. He was born in Hong Kong, but moved to New York City when he was about 10 years old. His parents owned a Chinese restaurant when he was young, and he credits that experience for making him feel so at home within the kitchen of the Senior Center. John is a happily retired civil service employee, serving for 26 years with the United States Marshal Service in the Eastern District of New York. They have two beautiful daughters, Samantha (age 28) and Elizabeth (age 21). Daughter, Sam, is a nurse in Philadelphia and daughter, Liz, just graduated from Pepperdine University in Malibu. John firmly believes that God is good and will smile upon us always. He has discovered he has a passion for serving others! Over the years, John has seen continuous renovations, improvements, education programs and added security to the Carlsbad Senior Center. John says that there is no other place he would rather be on Tuesday because while it is nice to be served, it is even better to serve! Join us for nutrious meals Monday through Friday 11:45 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. and meet volunteers like John who are honored to serve you or join us to volunteer and serve.
