Food Drive for our Neighbours

Our neighbour, the Kingston Alliance Church, has very graciously shared their parking lot with us since we opened in 2009. Please help us thank them, by contributing to their weekly food community outreach program. Bring 3 or more soup food items to your next health appointment, and we’ll offer you a reuseable KIHC tote bag in exchange.

In particular, they’re in need of soup broths or stock (canned or tetra packs), soup started kits, and canned or dried vegetables or legumes (e.g. tomato, lentils, beans, peas).

Walk To Fight Arthritis: Volunteers Needed!

walk_logoThis June 4th, the first annual Arthritis Society’s Walk to Fight Arthritis will be held in Kingston and your help is required! The Arthritis Society Committee is currently looking for members of the community to join the fight, as we strive for an arthritis-free future. Kingston Integrated Healthcare’s Christine Campbell is the Marketing Coordinator for the Committee and is very excited to be a part of this event.

The Vein of Gold: All are welcome to join us.

vein-of-goldIn the spring of 2016 some of us gathered at the clinic to do Julia Cameron’s book The Artist’s Way. It is a 12 week course on recovering the creative self. We started each week with a brief check-in to update each other regarding our creative journey. After our check-in, and a discussion of the week’s chapter, we each took a turn weekly to introduce and share a creative activity with the group. There was lots of laughter, learning and play time.

IN JANUARY 2017 we would like to take on another one of Julia Cameron’s books on creative recover, The Vein of Gold.
