The Sikh Foundation & the Sikh Family Center announce a mega family event, Health and Wellness For All, to bring you closer to a happy life & good health. 

Have you ever wondered, why do Punjabis fall prey to heart disease? Are you the worried parent of an adolescent or are you wondering how to achieve your child’s full potential? Do you worry about the mental health of your aging parents? What effect does a stressful lifestyle and acrimonious relationships have on our health? All your answer lies in here where experts from different areas would be sharing their insights on how to live a healthy and happy life. 

A panel of distinguished doctors and health experts will answer your queries related to health and bring you closer to the greatest wealth of mankind. Dr. Amrit K. Singh DDS, expertise as a dentist will immensely benefit us with her insights on how to keep good dental health throughout our life. Naina Sodhi LMFT, a licensed Marriage & Family Therapist will show us how to navigate the sensitive and emotional phase of adolescence and the teenage years. Dr. Jasbir Singh Kang M.D, a distinguished physician and community leader, will share his concerns on why our Punjabi diet and lack of exercise is causing our community to fall prey to early mortality and how we can rectify this. Dr Anu Kaur Sandhu M.D a certified psychiatrist from the Royal College of Canada will share her experiences on the causes and solutions of depression in the elderly. Dr Gurpreet Kaur Padam M.D will share her experiences working with the elderly on how to best approach the difficult and delicate maters during the ‘end of life’ care and planning for a graceful exit.
