Dr. David Podkameni, Wednesday October 27
During this stressful Covid time, most of us know someone who has gained weight over the past 18 months.
While the basics of managing weight still apply to senior adults, eat less move more, we tend to gain weight for different reasons and in different ways. And because many chronic illnesses develop in old age, it can be especially important to avoid being overweight - and especially obese - as we approach the senior years.
Dr Podkameni will offer insight on the importance of maintaining an ideal weight as we grow older and options for losing weight despite of the number on the scale.
Dr. David Podkameni is a general surgeon and is affiliated with multiple hospitals in the area. He has been in practice for more than 20 years. Dr. Podkameni attended Universidade Federal Fluminense (UFF) Faculdade de Medicina in Brazil, where he obtained his medical degree.
He completed an internship and residency in general surgery at Mount Sinai Hospital and completed another residency in general surgery at St. Vincent Medical Center in Los Angeles. He also finished fellowship at the Cleveland Clinic.
The presentation will be via Zoom, link to be posted.
A recording of the September 22 presentation by Dr. Jose Valenzuela on dentistry in Los Algodones Mexico is available at our Past Presentions page
If you would be interested in working and serving on the Kare Bears Board of Directors, we have two openings. A board member’s term is for a minimum of two years and a maximum of four years.
We are looking for energetic and enthusiastic “team players” with a commitment and skill to serve their friends and neighbors right here in PebbleCreek. The two positions are:
1st Vice President, and
The 1st Vice President is, perhaps, the most fun and rewarding position on the board. It requires people and communication skills. This board member recruits and trains residents who are the contact people for specific lots in their unit or in a neighboring unit. The contact people are called Unit Coordinators and work on behalf of Kare Bears to educate residents on Kare Bears services and be there for their neighbors in time of need. (They are different than the Unit Contacts through the HOA.)
The Marketing/ Communications Director oversees advertising, promotion and publicity. This director also is responsible for investigating new products and services.
Our community is growing so fast and this person will be instrumental in educating the community on the services that Kare Bears provides,
If these positions are not something that interests you, there are also several Special Volunteer positions needed.
1. Assisting the Treasurer
Must be familiar with Quick Books, Microsoft Word and Excel.
2. Organizer and director of the annual distribution of the Pebble Creek Source Books provided through Robson.
If you are looking for a way to meet people, become involved and make a difference in the lives of others, Kare Bears want you! Please contact Rayma Scalzo, Nominating Committee Chair, at 623-935-1819 or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
