news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY: 

Robert Douglas Harder (alias Doug) fittingly was born on a Labor Day. Sept 22, 1937 in an oil camp in Houston, Texas near the Rio Grande River. He didn’t stay there long enough to get tall. Doug attended grade schools in Louisiana and Missouri and the 5th through 11th grade (minus one year) in Casper, Wyoming. While in the fourth grade, he had Scarlet Fever. He finished high school in Englewood.  He attended 21 schools in 20 years (slow learner?).


Doug was in the Army National Guard from 1959 to 1966 and said his squad did a fabulous job of keeping the Commies out of GA. After that, he attended CU and UNC and retired as a Mortgage Broker. To keep him out of trouble now, he mows the back nine at Raccoon Creek. He also has been a member of Pastor Robinson church, Christ Lutheran for over 46 years and an Elder for 38 years. Shortly after the Katrina disaster, he and Pastor Robinson went down there with a disaster relief team. He said you never want to see such destruction.

Doug has been married to Carolyn over 46 years and they have 4 children and 10 grandkids. Their oldest, Zach, was a member for a short time.

Doug was brought into the club by Bill Parchen in 1966 and has been president twice and has a Gold coat. He has been on the Foundation Committee and brought in over 50 members to Sertoma. (way to go Doug)


Program:   Scott Manley introduced Bill Bergman MD who spoke about Preventive and Naturopathic Medicine. His primary focus is helping people through preventive medicine rather than medical treatment. He mainly focused on preventing influenza. During the Spanish flu epidemic of 1918 approximately 50 million persons died. Survival depended entirely on one’s own immune system. There have been numerous reports of the benefits of prevention: In America a 28 times lower death rate during flu epidemics has been recorded and India reports a 25 times reduction in their death rate during influenza outbreaks.

Bill Bergman, M.D. is a physician and educator in the fast-growing field of alternative and preventive medicine, and has a particular interest in a spiritual and holistic approach to health promotion and stress management.

Raised in New York City, Dr. Bergman attended Westbury High School, graduating in 1962 with the American Legion Citizenship Award and the Bank of Westbury Outstanding Student Award. A Phi Beta Kappa, magna cum laude graduate of Amherst College in 1966, he went on to Columbia University, College of Physicians and Surgeons as a member of the International Fellows Program at the Columbia University School of International and Public Affairs and a Edward John Noble Foundation Fellowship recipient in 1968. Dr. Bergman completed his post-graduate training at Denver General Hospital in 1971, where he first began researching preventive healthcare and methods for reducing the risk of serious disease.

Dr. Bergman recommends that individuals consider using a product by the name of influenzieum. For additional information go to website
