Ravin will provide care at Merrimack Valley Hospital in Haverhill and at Holy Family Hospital in Methuen, where he will join Board Certified Endocrinologist Naaznin Lokhandwala, MD, in the Steward Holy Family Hospital Endocrinology Center.

Chocolate, the perfect drug? In a presentation called “Chocolate, The Perfect Indulgence,” Northern Essex Community College chemistry professor Mike Cross will share his knowledge as both a chemist and a passionate lover of chocolate with audiences throughout the area this Valentine’s Day season.

Presentations are open to the public and will be held on Feb. 13 at 6:30 p.m. at Manchester by the Sea Public Library, Feb. 15 at 1 p.m. at the Tower Hill Botanic Garden in Boylston, and on Feb. 18 at 7 p.m. at the Hampstead Public Library in Hampstead, N.H.

According to Cross, chocolate might just be the “perfect drug.” With high quality versions of chocolate carrying more than 500 natural chemicals and more antioxidants then a bowl of blueberries, chocolate can increase feelings of well-being, reduce high blood pressure, relax blood vessels and more, Cross said. The library presentations are free and the Tower Hill Botanic Garden presentation is free with the price of admission. Cross holds a Ph.D. in organic chemistry from the University of Utah where he specialized in oxidative lesions in DNA and RNA. His presentations are part of NECC’s Speakers’ Bureau.

Coffeehouse performances on tap: Folk music artist Chelsea Berry will perform at the New Moon Coffeehouse on Saturday, Feb. 15, at 8 p.m.

Opening act is Kangaralien, the Boston-based acoustic guitar duo of Eric Clemenzi and Steve Belleville. Admission is $20 and $10 for ages 18 and under. Tickets will be available at the door starting around 6:30 p.m. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. Tickets may be reserved prior to the show by visiting www.newmooncoffeehouse.org or by calling 978-459-5134.
