EXPLORING THE CONNECTION BETWEEN THE FACTORS PROMOTING BRAIN HEALTH AND VOLUNTEERISM

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 24, 12:00 PM

Join us as we hear from Rebecca Smither, Outreach and Engagement Coordinator for the University of Miami, Miller School of Medicine’s Comprehensive Center for Brain Health in Boca Raton, as she discusses their research into the factors promoting brain health. She will tell us how you can help their research as a volunteer participant.

Encore PBC is a strong advocate that volunteerism is an important element in healthy aging. There is much research that supports this. Christine Catoggio and Joni Cherbo, Encore Board members, will also share their development of a Volunteer Assessment Profile to help people find the right volunteer opportunity for them.
