Straight from the pages of National Geographic, attendees of September’s AgingWell will hear about the latest and most innovative research work being done to find answers to the causes of Alzheimer’s disease. MirandaE.Orr, PhD is an associate professor in Internal Medicine, Division on Gerontology and Geriatric Medicine, at Wake Forest University School of Medicine and a research health scientist at the Salisbury VA Medical Center. Her pioneering research focuses on changes that occur with aging and how they influence the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease.
The calendar reminds us that autumn is just around the corner and there’s absolutely no better place to enjoy the changing of the seasons than in our beautiful North Carolina mountains! Come with us as Brandon Holder, Cultural Resources Coordinator for The Jones House Cultural Center in Boone, NC, shares some of the charm of his community through music and local artwork that contribute to the culture that makes Boone the perfect destination for a weekend getaway or easy day trip!
And while you’re in Boone, you will not want to miss the Lobster Pasta at The Beacon Butcher Bar Restaurant! Executive Chef Trey Templeton shares one of their signature dishes that helped put the restaurant on the map! While Lobster Pasta may sound like a fancy, special occasion dish, Chef Templeton walks us through just how easy it is to create this unique, delicious, and savory dinner!
