Gene-Based Health: Change Your Destiny with Lifestyle Planning

Sep 23, 2017 @ 11:00am   Member Events

Your family’s health history is not your health destiny. Your genes tell an important story about your health risks and potential. You can rewrite that story by planning your lifestyle around your genes. In this way, you learn to work with your genetic code rather than against it.

Dr. Mueller will discuss what we can learn from genetic testing and how it helps determine what lifestyle habits will work best with your genetic makeup.

Check out this video from Dr. Mueller, where he explains how variations in your genetic code can assist in mapping out lifestyle changes.

When: Saturday, September 23

Musical Fall Open House and Language Social with The Language Exchange

Sep 12, 2017 @ 5:30pm   Events, Member Events

Portland, Maine. The Language Exchange will host an Open House/Language Social to mark the upcoming start of a new fall session of language classes, workshops, and cultural events on Tuesday September 12th, 2017. Music will be provided by the Mainstream Jazz Masters to accompany a fun evening of foreign language chitchats.

It was 25 years ago that having met a small group of instructors, all from different countries, and all attracted by the same desire to share their language and culture, Valérie Guillet, a native of France, decided to launch The Language Exchange out of a tiny space at the corner of Exchange and Fore streets.
Today, still on Exchange street but in a much larger space on upper Exchange, the school has grown to include 12 to 15 teachers but retains the values at its core: sharing languages and cultures as a means to bridge the gap among cultures. The school offers four sessions of eight to ten week-long group classes per year locally, as well as occasional overseas programs. This fall’s session, which starts as early as September 25th, will feature group and individual classes in Modern Standard Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, and Spanish at a variety of levels from Beginner to Advanced and a long-waited-for life-experience-packed week-long immersion program in Provence, in the south of France for a group of twenty lucky students!
At the Open House, people will be invited to stop by between 5:30pm and 7:00 pm to enjoy refreshments, good company and music by Mainstream Jazz Masters. In the process, everyone will have a chance to practice his/her language skills, chat with instructors and have his/her questions answered about upcoming classes. This open house will also mark the deadline to take advantage of the 10% early registration discount on group classes for the fall. Finally, anyone present will be able to partake in a drawing to win a class or private lessons, or a few other language goodies to use during the fall session!
In its 25th year in business, The Language Exchange continues to promote the learning of foreign languages and understanding of other cultures not only through its weekly daytime and evening classes but also through weekend workshops and social events, the schedule of which will be finalized and uploaded in the upcoming weeks. This information and much more can be found on the school’s Local Programs page at
Finally this year, as a return to the source – France! — twenty lucky students will embark on a week-long program called Balade d’Automne en Provence, a French language and cultural immersion program designed for adult learners who want to discover or rediscover this beautiful part of France densely packed with cultural and historical delights while strengthening and enhancing their knowledge of the French language and deepening their sense of French history, amidst a serene and peaceful country-living experience. Later in the year, the public will be invited to a presentation of Balade en Provence with slides and an abundance of stories.
The Language Exchange welcomes anyone interested in foreign languages, travel, and cultures of the world to join its vibrant community. It is conveniently located on Upper Exchange Street in the Old Port.

Where: The Language Exchange, 80 Exchange Street

When: Tuesday September 12th, 2017, 5:30-7pm
