Wellness Wednesdays – NEUROFIBROMATOSIS: Becoming informed
St. James Cathedral’s Mental Health Wellness Ministry and the Archdiocese of Seattle Mental Health Ministry are sponsoring Wellness Wednesdays, a monthly educational forum featuring professionals from various mental health disciplines speaking on topics of interest.

He will speak about the Foundation’s focus on raising awareness about NF, current research in this field, as well as information about the disease itself.
Michael Hoyal is a Seattle native with deep ties to the St. James Cathedral community. He attended St. Joseph’s School in Seattle and Seattle Preparatory School. Michael lives the core values taught at these schools including selflessness, advocacy, and service, among others. Michael currently attends Howard University, majoring in Biology. He plans to become a medical doctor. He is currently combining his interests in science and outreach by spreading knowledge about neurofibromatosis. Michael also plans to organize events at his school to fundraise for research on this disease.
