SASI in the Community
SASI sponsors a variety of community events related to staying healthy at home. Please check our calendar for upcoming and past seminars and events. As new programs are scheduled, their descriptions will be added here.
Two Couples' Stories: Reflections on a Journey Through Alzheimer's Disease For this event, we will hear from two couples whose lives have been impacted by Alzheimer's disease. They will share with us, in their words, their experiences from the time leading up to the diagnosis to today. Their stories were developed as part of the Storytelling Program at the Cognitive Neurology and Alzheimer's Disease Center at Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine. The presentation will be moderated by Lauren Dowden, LSW, with ample time for questions and answers. Thursday, April 7 at 7 pm, Wilmette Public Library, 1242 Wilmette Avenue, Wilmette. Please register through the Wilmette Public Library, 847-256-6930.
Ageism: Is It Chronic? At our Spring Salon, SASI and Senior Connections sponsor Phyllis Mitzen who will lead a thoughtful and thought provoking discussion about a topic important to all of us. Thursday, May 12, 7 pm, Evanston Art Center, 1717 Central Street, Evanston. Registration required by calling 847-864-7274.
