Are you ready for an outdoor adventure? This month we will be hopingfor beautiful weather as we explore Sweetwater Creek State Park. Sweetwater Creek State Park, located just outside Atlanta’s western perimeter, spans over 2500 acres of creekside landscape. Sweetwater Creek trails offers fresh air and cardio in a beautiful forest filled with whitewater, waterfalls and ruins near Atlanta. Sweetwater Creek provides North Georgia outdoor adventure – without the drive.
The park’s landscape varies widely and changes regularly on its meandering trails, hiking both cliff-filled and sandy creek shores, expansive meadows and densely shaded forest. And in close proximity to the city, this Georgia State Park has achieved popularity worthy of its beauty. As we get closer, I will send you an address on a meeting place so that we can carpool. Make sure to do your good weather dance to keep the rain away. :)

Dr. Manu O. Platt is originally from Trenton, NJ and received his B.S. in Biology from Morehouse College in 2001 and his Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology and Emory University School of Medicine in 2006. He was one of the first graduates from the newly formed joint program between these two institutions. He finished his postdoctoral training at MIT in orthopedic tissue engineering and systems biology prior to returning to Georgia Tech and Emory in the joint department of Biomedical Engineering in January 2009, where he is now a recently promoted Associate Professor. Dr. Platt’s transdisciplinary research bridges tissue remodeling, systems biology, and a number of diseases. The Platt Lab studies proteolytic mechanisms in a number of diseases: pediatric strokes in children with sickle cell disease, HIV-mediated cardiovascular disease, tendinopathy in overuse injuries, endometriosis, and personalized medicine applications to predict individual patient-specific cancer metastasis potential. His work has been funded by NIH Director’s New Innovator Award, International AIDS Society, Georgia Cancer Coalition, and the National Science Foundation. He is also the Diversity Director for the NSF Science and Technology Center on Emergent Behaviors of Integrated Cellular Systems (EBICS) that is a joint research center between Georgia Tech, University of Illinois, and MIT.  As a part of this, he co-founded and co-directs Project ENGAGES, Engaging the Next Generation at Georgia Tech in Engineering and Sciences, a summer and academic year scientific research program to recruit and train high school students from Atlanta Public School system into the biotechnology and engineering disciplines by involving them in independent research projects in Georgia Tech labs.

First off guys, this service will be a little different than usual. We have a cap of about 4 volunteers at the Ponce De Leon Church in Buckhead. Once we reach 4 people we can have another 4 out at Johns Creek, but the Johns Creek location starts at 9:30. If we go over 4 I will volunteer myself to go out there. So yes a total of 8 people can signup. Please signup as early as possible so I can lock down our time. I will have to close the registration as we get closer to the event.  

Bluehair Technology Group is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to show seniors how to use technology so they can stay connected to their family, friends and the world.


We will be assuming the role of technology ambassadors (http://bluehairtech.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/Volunteer-checklist.pdf). The role requires us to assist instructors in training seniors to use basic iPhone/Android tasks. You can find the site at (http://bluehairtech.org/).
