April 2024

There is so much more to taking care of our teeth and gums than just having a beautiful smile. Did you know that our mouths are the primary entry point for infections and other dangerous organisms? Some chronic conditions such as diabetes and heart disease are also associated with oral health problems such as tooth loss and periodontitis, an infection of the gums. Attendees of April’s AgingWell will hear from Mashica Jefferson Tobias, BSDH, RDH, CDHC, Public Health Dental Hygienist with the Forsyth County Department of Public Health on what we can, and should, be doing to protect our teeth and gums which in turn will help keep our bodies healthy!
There is nothing better than a neighborhood restaurant where diners know they will be greeted with a warm welcome by familiar faces. In Winston-Salem, one of the most iconic restaurants and a favorite of the locals is the West End Cafe. After 40 years in business, the team at West End Cafe have created a menu that is the perfect blend of familiar comfort food along with entrees that offer innovative, seasonal twists. Join Chef Justin Vernon as he demonstrates how to create their signature Arugula Salad- refreshing for a warm springtime meal!

In Winston-Salem we are fortunate to have a wealth of organizations and resources just for older adults- all with the shared mission of providing opportunities for meaningful and fun activities. One such organization is the Shepherd’s Center of Greater Winston-Salem where you will find programs that range from beginner’s bridge, to crocheting, to jewelry making to the newest offering- wet felting. Kristin Larson, Director of the Vital Living Program introduces us to Karen Mclaughlin, an expert in the craft of wet felting. Karen will take us step-by-step through the process and along with student Monica Winter will demonstrate how to create a stunning scarf using unspun wool and silk.
