Chinese Health Day Flyer

Carolyn’s note: Although I am not of Chinese ethnicity, I am a member of the Tucson Chinese Cultural Center since I am a passionate (and fairly good and somewhat lucky) mah jong player. Check out this healthy festival tomorrow on UA Mall, for free.

Attended two talks by Chinese doctors about Traditional Chinese Medicine and the differences with Western medicine; viewed a lovely fashion show of women’s dresses from all over China; watched several tai chi performances, and the listened to soothing music by the Purple Bamboo Ensemble. There were also Chinese games, cooking demos (and some tasty samples), health information & check ups.
