AgingWell Virtual Seminar Series

There has never been a better time for all of us to find ways that we can stay healthy. This is especially true during the pandemic as older adults can often be at a higher risk for more serious complications from the COVID-19 virus.

Now older adults, and those who love them, can stay connected and learn about ways to stay healthy.

This Series is sponsored by Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist, Sticht Center for Healthy Aging and Alzheimer’s Prevention and is presented from 5:30-6:30 pm on the second Tuesday of each month on-line via Zoom. Sign up for our upcoming virtual meetings in the calendar below.

May 2022

As our weather continues to (hopefully) warm up there are more reasons than ever to pack away our winter clothes and get ready to enjoy our North Carolina Spring. But do you know how to best protect your skin while enjoying the outdoors? Since May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month, our speaker for May’s AgingWell speaker is Dermatologist, Lindsay Strowd, MD, with Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist. Dr. Strowd will be sharing information on the how the largest organ in our body- our skin, functions as well as how to look for suspicious skin growths and the myth-busters for skin care! 
 
Celebrating the flavors of Spring for our May cooking demonstration is Chef Alex Governale, Executive Chef at the Butcher and Bull Restaurant located in downtown Winston-Salem. This month Chef Alex will be showing us how to create one of his signature dishes, Ancho Rubbed Flank Steak with Avocado Cream and Corn and Black Bean Relish. You will see that there are NO edits in his cooking demonstration which proves that this delicious entrée can be prepared from start to finish in only 13 minutes! 
 
Just a short drive up the road from Winston-Salem is Minglewood Farm and Nature Preserve nestled in the lush woodlands of Westfield, NC. In addition to being a small produce farm, their main mission is to “Connect students of all ages to the natural world and inspire a sense of environmental stewardship through place-based learning in the Piedmont and Foothills of North Carolina.” We join Margie Imus as she leads us on a tour of the farm and nature preserve that she and husband Bill created 36 years ago with the goal of helping others nurture their relationship with nature.
