Senior BrainMinder at the Market House

 

March 17, 2009



The Pilot Club of Pittsburgh is joining hundreds of organizations worldwide to increase public awareness of the advances and benefits of brain research.

As part of Brain Awareness Week, March 16 - 22, the Pilot Club of Pittsburgh is sponsoring a Senior BrainMinder™ education program on March 19, at 10:30 a.m. at the South Side Citipark Senior Recreation Center at 12th St. and Bingham St.

Sherri Lynn Dunik, the club's BrainMinders'™ presenter states, “The physical rejuvenation of the body, once unheard of, is pretty common place today. Staying young now requires physical and mental fitness. Brain fitness is the new battleground on the anti-aging front. There are over seventy nine million baby boomers that are rapidly changing into senior boomers. They all want to know, what can be done to hold off the aging process and rejuvenate what they already have?”

The BrainMinders™ Senior presentation offer supplements including memory loss information, how to identify a stroke, brain fitness activities, tips on remembering numbers and the Staying Sharp Booklet Series. Staying Sharp, an ongoing initiative created by the Dana Alliance in partnership with the NRTA: AARP's Educator Community, focuses on understanding how the brain works and maximizing brain function and health, particularly in the second half of life.

For more information or to schedule a BrainMinder™ presentation, contact President, Mollieann Gray at 412-751-4929 or email PILOT PGH@hotmail.com.
