BACS Brain Boost-to-Go chronicles the efforts of the Bay Area Community Services (BACS) organization to make the early support and educational benefits of early memory loss programs accessible to all. We will explore purpose, design, strategies, and outcomes of this ongoing outreach to pre-need older adults.
Participants in this web seminar will:
- Receive information on early memory loss programs
- Learn strategies for tailoring curricula to different educational/cultural/experiential levels
- Familiarize themselves with resources for outreach and curriculum design.
- Earn one hour of *free* continuing education credit by attending the event and completing a CEU survey
