CULTURAL ARTS

Program: Speaker Series

Historically, the Woman’s Club of Coconut Grove has invited prominent members of our community to speak to our Club membership and guests at the conclusion of its monthly meeting/luncheon, typically held on the first Thursday of each month. For obvious reasons, WCCG will not be having in-person gatherings, meetings or buffet luncheons for the foreseeable future.

In an effort to provide its members with a sense of consistency and connectedness during the covid pandemic, speaker presentations will be pre-recorded using the Club’s interior stage and lighting. These videos will be “aired” from the Club at 1PM on the first Thursday each month and can be seen on FaceBook Live at that time.

Bill Boland

Bill Boland is an exercise physiologist with over 25 years of experience treating chronic and traumatic pain, balance and neurological issues in men and women, young and old in New York City and Miami. In addition, he provides pre and post-surgery and injury rehabilitation treatments. Working From Home is a short presentation and demonstration Bill has created to provide us with easy, everyday solutions to counteract the excessive sitting we do each day.

Spending all day, every day, in a sitting position gives us rounded backs, forward heads, and twisted spines. This short presentation shows us that we need to pay more attention to our bodies, stand more, and sit less.
