Wednesday , February 11, 6:45-8:00. Osteoporosis and Bone Health: More than Just Calcium, with Adam Stark. The research is evolving, year by year, month by month even. We’re learning new truths, and questioning old assumptions. Is it true that we need magnesium with calcium? How much do we need?  (And while we’re on the subject, do we even need calcium in the first place?) We all know vitamin D plays a role, but what about the research on vitamin K out of Japan? We’ll take a broad overview, and cover Adam’s Top-Five Tips for Healthy Bones, version 2015.1. Free, but limited to 60. Reserve your chair today because this talk is always popular!

Wednesday, February 18, 7:00-8:30.  Olive Oil Sampling with Debra Stark. Debra is no olive oil expert, but looks forward to sharing with you what she’s learned from the real experts (we’ve actually quite a few in the Boston area)! We’ll SWIRL, SNIFF, SLURP and SWALLOW some wonderful extra virgin olive oils and see if we can find what they call a three-cough extra virgin olive oil. Free, but limited to 60. Sign up in advance in the store, or call us at 978-371-7573 to reserve a seat.
