3-D Printing, Palliative Care Programs at Library

— The Chantilly Regional Library is holding two, upcoming programs of interest to the local community. This Saturday, March 2, at 2:30 p.m., NovaLabs Makerspace is doing a program on 3-D Printing for ages 10 through adults.

There’ll be a live demonstration of digital fabrication with personal 3-D printers. It’s co-sponsored by NOVARRG (Northern Virginia RepRap Group) and NovaLabs and will be held in the library’s meeting room.

Then on Thursday, March 7, at 11 a.m., also in the meeting room, the library will host a program called, “How Can Palliative Care Help Me and My Family?” The speaker is Dr. Thomas Sullivan, director of Palliative Care at Inova Fair Oaks Hospital.

Family medicine is the medical specialty concerned with the total health care of the individual and the family. Palliative Care frequently occurs from the time of diagnosis of a serious illness and continues for many years. Caregivers advocate for aggressive goals, when appropriate, and help families with difficult discussions and decisions throughout the process of the illness.

The Chantilly Regional Library is at 4000 Stringfellow Road. For more information, call 703-502-3883.
