Nourish Your Brain

placeholder image

 

Have you ever walked into a room and forgotten why?  Perhaps you’ve misplaced your glasses just to find them on your head a little later. As we age we must make a concerted effort to provide our brain plenty of nourishment from healthful foods and mentally stimulating activities to prevent or at least slow the progression of more serious brain conditions.

If you are interested in learning more about antioxidant-rich foods and physical/mental activities that can contribute to brain health then you should attend July’s C.O.R.E. (Community Out-Reach Education) Program at VCU Health Community Memorial Hospital’s Rehab & Exercise Therapy Center.

This FREE program will be on Friday, July 13th at 10:30 a.m. in the CMH Rehab and Exercise Therapy Center located at 750 Lombardy Street in South Hill.

Amy Moore Hawkins, Extension Agent, Family and Consumer Sciences Virginia Cooperative Extension for Mecklenburg County, will be the speaker for the program.  Amy has been with the Virginia cooperative Extension for 14 years. Her job responsibilities include educating the public on nutrition, health and wellness, particularly chronic disease prevention and maintenance.  She also focuses on local foods and their connection to health and wellness.  Since coming to Mecklenburg County, she has implemented the Balanced Living with Diabetes program, Mast Food Volunteer training, multiple nutrition and wellness workshops, food safety and food preservation workshops as well as school garden projects.   

Reservations are not required for this program; however, they are recommended.  For more information or to register to attend, please call (434) 774-2506.
