Bo Emerson, a long-time reporter for The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, shared some ideas of what residents can get “out and about to.” Emerson recommended the Atlanta Opera’s Come as You Are Festival at Pullman Yards, which will feature a new production of “Cabaret.” Green-thumbs can visit Atlanta Botanical Garden’s event to learn about bee-keeping, also in June.
Sharon Henderson, DNP, APRN-BC, an elder care nurse practitioner at Kaiser Permanente Medicine, addressed how you should speak with your doctor about reducing medicines, exploring reversible causes of changes in the brain that increase forgetfulness as we age, and how physical activity and a good night’s sleep can help memory.
Following the event, two registrants were randomly selected to win $50 Kroger gift cards.
Presenting sponsor Kroger made the event possible. If you couldn’t view it Tuesday, you can watch a replay on The Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s YouTube channel.
