Anna visits the Verdi Club..

Anna Conti writes about a visit to the Verdi Club -

"This past Monday I went over to the Verdi Club to see "Don't Call Me Retard," one of Arline Klatte and Beth Lisick's monthly storytelling series - this one benefiting Creativity Explored. The storytellers were teachers and students at the Mission art studio that serves artists with developmental disabilities. Or, as one of the speakers described the place, "a safe haven for the vulnerable."

I walk by Creativity Explored all the time and keep meaning to go in and talk to them. It's on my list for next year when I am not going to school three days a week! My heart goes out to the young man with Prader-Willi Syndrome. I used to work for the Department of Endocrinology at UCSF and we saw a lot of patients with that disease.
