Next Ladder Meeting: Fun with the Stomach, Guts & Stuff!

Ever wondered what happens after you gulp down a bowl of cereal, gnaw a slice of pizza, or crunch on an apple?

tumblr_mi34d40xJR1rd0rbzo1_500How does your body turn the food you put in your mouth into stuff it can actually use? The magic (ok not really magic, but the really cool and kind of amazing transformation) happens through the function of your gastrointestinal (GI) system, which includes your stomach and guts.

At our next meeting of the Ladder (coming up fast – already next Saturday June 8th!) we’ll learn about how our GI systems work, how healthcare professionals (like docs, nurses, specialists) can help us keep our GI systems healthy, and how those folks can help us when our GI systems get outta whack.

So bring your GI system and a friend and join us for lunch (provided!) and learning at the next meeting of the Ladder Saturday June 8th at 12:30pm at the  UROC building (2001 Plymouth Ave N, Minneapolis). The UROC building is reachable by Metro Transit bus routes 19, 32 & 7.
