Dine with Doc’ presenter to explain links he sees between biblical wisdom, physical wellness

TERRE HAUTE — ‘The October meeting of Dine with a Doc West Terre Haute will feature Roy Geib, Ph.D., and take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Tuesday at Providence Housing All Place, 219 N. Providence Place.

Geib will discuss how he believes one can achieve wellness through the ancient wisdom of the Bible.

Geib is an Alvin S. Levine Professor of Microbiology and Immunology at Indiana University School of Medicine, with joint appointments as a professor of pathology and laboratory medicine and as a professor in the department of biology at Indiana State University.

He received a bachelor’s degree in biology from Montclair State College in 1974 and his Ph.D. in biomedical sciences from the University of Texas Health Science Center at Dallas. His graduate and post-graduate research was in the areas of immunogenetics, immunology and virology.

His current research interest is in exploring the process of healthy aging. Specifically, he is interested in the interactions between stress, relaxation, exercise, nutrition, spirituality and the immune system.

He is particularly interested in exploring the health benefits of mind-body modalities such as dancing, tai chi and Qigong for the prevention and intervention of chronic diseases, such as cancer, depression, post-traumatic stress, obesity and diabetes.

Dine with a Doc is a free event that welcomes the local senior public to hear the doctor of the month present an educational topic while attendees enjoy a complimentary meal. Visitors do not need to be members of the Senior Center to come and participate. Each doctor has donated this time in effort to hear and answer questions while sharing a meal with community members.

A question-and-answer period will follow the discussion. Lunch will be provided courtesy of Terre Haute Nursing and Rehabilitation, 830 S. Sixth St. There will be an opening prayer, and veterans in attendance will be recognized for their service and dedication, followed by the Pledge of Allegiance. Various health care providers will share information about their services and provide door prizes for participants to win.

Reservations are strongly recommended. Call 812-230-7772 to register.

The Dine with a Doc program welcomes suggestions for physicians and businesses to feature. Email loriaplin@gmail.com or visit www.senioreducationministries.org or www.dinewithadoc.com for more information.
