  • BETTER BRAIN HEALTHThursday, September 20, 1:30-2:30 pm
    • You are invited to attend a FREE one-hour educational session, presented by Mary Ellen Smith, a registered nurse, who will teach participants what they can do to lower their dementia risk and keep their brains healthy. The program will cover common diseases that cause dementia, other conditions that mimic dementia, signs and symptoms, risk factors, strategies to maintain a healthy brain (physical health, nutrition, mental stimulation, social engagement), and available resources. “Better Brian Health” will be presented on Thursday, September 20, 1:30-2:30 pm, in the Peninsula Room, on the first floor of the Government Center in Sturgeon Bay. This program is part of GrapeVine, which trains nurses to lead health education sessions in their communities.
