Sharp Again Naturally (SAN), a nonprofit organization devoted to brain health, will host a virtual “Memory Drive” on July 21st at 7 pm. The 40-minute free event will offer participants information to prevent, slow and possibly reverse cognitive decline. In addition, the event will include a healthy cooking demo, a chair yoga presentation, and a chance to shop the silent auction right from home. Honorees are Lucy Waletzky, MD, who will share her inspiring story of recovery, and Howard Hindin, DDS, who serves on the SAN Board of Directors as well the organization’s Medical/Dental Advisory Board. Funds raised through donations, sponsorships and the silent auction will support critical educational programs and outreach efforts.
“As our population lives longer, it is estimated that half of our elders over the age of 85 will be afflicted with dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease and up to 5 percent of dementia cases are diagnosed before the age of 65,” says Lisa Feiner, MBA, M.Ed., Board Chair and Co-Founder of SAN. “Despite billions of dollars spent on medical research, a pharmaceutical cure remains elusive. A scientifically based, multi-therapeutic approach has been shown to be effective in both preventing cognitive decline and having positive outcomes in its early stages. Our mission is to get this message out, and to prevent the heartache and toll that dementia takes on individuals and their families. Through our work, we envision a world where everyone has access to the knowledge, tools and care to maintain a healthy brain.”
Founded in 2012, SAN’s mission is to educate individuals, their families and caregivers, and the medical and dental professionals supporting them, about causes of memory loss and dementia, and what they can do, starting today, to positively impact brain function. In doing so, SAN has built a global community of those who seek solutions for maintaining cognitive health and reversing Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. With this event—and other initiatives including webinars, support groups and one-on-one health coaching—SAN is building on its longstanding commitment of providing hope and information.
The Memory Drive on July 21st will offer insight into the causes of memory loss, and what individuals can do to protect their own brain health.
