Healthy aging is important for everyone, says the non-profit Alzheimer Society of BC.
“And it is essential not to forget the health of your brain as well,” says Linda Hoskin, the Society’s regional support and education coordinator.
To help area residents, the society will run an informational workshop, Healthy Brain, on Monday, March 5 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Nelson Silver King campus of Selkirk College.
The two-hour session will stress the importance of actively protecting and maintaining good brain health, offering practical strategies and goals for improving the health of your mind, body and spirit. Fee is $15 plus GST.
Space is limited so pre-registration is required. Call Selkirk College 250-352-6601 to register.
