Complimentary Stem Cell Seminars Held in Chesterfield

As guest speaker of the Ozzie Smith IMAC Regeneration Center, stem cell expert Dr. Ian White conducted several stem cell seminars at Spiro’s restaurant in Chesterfield about how stem cells can treat pain and eliminate the need for surgery or prescription medications.

Dr. White received his doctorate degree from Cornell University and has studied stem cells for 20-plus years. He is a highly publicized scientist and author who shared information on the different types of stem cells and how human bodies use these cells to heal many different types of health conditions and injuries.

Stem cells at the Ozzie Smith IMAC Regeneration generally are retrieved via a body’s adipose tissue, usually from the abdomen or flank. To inquire about potential, future stem cell seminars, call 314.200.4955.

Rockwood Educators Take on Dyslexia Simulations

Prior to the new school year, Rockwood educators completed a four-day annual teacher orientation that included dyslexia simulation.

Shelley Willott, Rockwood executive director learning and support services, says the hope is the training experience will lead to greater empathy and understanding, as well as provide insight into working more effectively with students who may have reading concerns.

Participants rotated among six learning stations that simulate various language-related tasks similar to those encountered in the classroom. Rockwood reading teachers guided them through reading, auditory, visual-motor skills, letter-word identification and non-dominant writing.

Were You Part of the 100th PGA Championship?

The St. Louis community was fortunate to host this summer’s 100th Professional Golf Association championship at Bellerive Country Club.

Unfazed by what was deemed “Tigermania,” pro golfer Brooks Koepka won his third career major at the championship. 

“It pushes you to step up your game,” Koepka said about holding off Tiger Woods. “Because you know he’s right there if you fall.”

With Koepka winning the PGA and U.S. Open in the same season, he joins only other four men to do so: Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus, Ben Hogan and Gene Sarazen.
