Newberg: Gerontology brain health seminar

Beginning in January, members of the Newberg community and students at PCC Newberg Center (135 Werth Blvd., Newberg, 97132) will have the opportunity to learn more about changes in cognitive functioning, myths and fears related to cognitive aging, brain exercises, and healthy “brain food” in a half-day seminar.

On Saturday, Jan. 12, PCC Newberg will host “Aging with Brain Health in MIND,” a seminar from 8:15 a.m. to noon. Free and open to the public, the workshop will feature food and music that contributes to brain health; a presentation from Roger Anunsen, a gerontology instructor at the Sylvania Campus who also will lead a question-and-answer session with attendees; and remarks from local leaders and event co-sponsors Climax Portable Machine Tools and Friendsview Retirement Community.

To register for the seminar, please call (971) 722-8602, and leave your name, e-mail address and phone number on the voicemail. Seating is limited, and pre-registration is required.
