Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:

I delivered two presentations to seniors and staff at the Holly Manor Senior Center in Schenectady. The topic was Memory Tips and Successful Aging. The events took place on May 19 and 22. Our goal was to engage members of the community and we had much larger than expected turnouts. We plan to return to this and other senior centers.
