    The Mid-Peninsula Steering Committee (Ginny Frederick, Joan Berman, Leah Reider, Roland Hsu, Jennifer Lezin, Nancy Fernbach) have been busy planning the 2018-19 Program of CEU presentations. Our district meets seven times a year including a social networking meeting. Our programs will start on Friday, October 19 at noon (12-2PM) at Palo Alto Medical Foundation with a presentation — “Update on the Pharmacology of Cannabis” given by Gordon Wong MD. Other programs include one on “Mindfulness" and another on "Care Giver Challenges." The whole schedule will be available on the District website as soon as confirmed. Last year we had a Social/Networking Evening and due to the popularity we will have another one at Jennifer Lezin home on January 23 at 6PM. This is a good time for new members to mix with long term members. We will also have a 6 hour Law and Ethics Training on December 1, 2018 at the Palo Alto Medical Foundation. We have an average of 25 people who attend the meetings and are eager to welcome new members and new professionals to the area and Society.  Ginny Frederick, Joan Berman
