Got out our Message at Senior Expo Santa Barbara–October 3

For the second year in a row, members of the CIIG Professional Outreach Committee (POC) participated in the annual Senior Expo at the Earl Warren Show Grounds. We found serious interest and were able to share our stories and distribute literature. Be on the look out for new people who might be attending our meetings who learned about us at this event and please let someone on the POC know. It was so beautiful letting people know about OA and that we are alive and well in Santa Barbara, Goleta, Ojai and Carp and Camarillo. Consider joining the POC and helping us get out the message! And, if you are recovered, be sure to share your story with your doctor or other health care professional. If you do not have access to a Health Care Professional Packet contact Stephanie at ‭(805) 729-4811‬, and she will get one to you.
