The White Cloud Rotary welcomed in a pair of special guests to their meeting on February 26th.
Eric Hipple who stood under center for the Lions during much of the 1980’s and Jeffrey Leighton of SPESA Research Institute. The two spoke to a research study that will be conducted through Newaygo County Community Mental Health involving the use of EEG monitoring in the retraining of the brain. The initiative’s goal is to impact addiction to drugs, primarily heroin and methamphetamine.
While Jeff covered much of the technical aspects of the proposed research, Eric shared his personal story of depression and addiction and his journey from trauma to triumph.
The twosome were guests of Carol Mills of NC CMH.
