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.

August 2022

Did you know that one of the most important steps that we can ALL take in our efforts to Age Well is Eating Well? Contrary to what some may think- Eating Well does NOT mean meals that are boring or bland! Attendees of the August AgingWell will hear from Dixie Yow, MS, RD, LDN, Senior Clinical Research Dietitian with the Sticht Center for Healthy Aging and Alzheimer’s Prevention on how to plan and prepare meals that are interesting, flavorful, visually appealing and most of all- good for both your body and brain health! 

Back at YOUR request—this month AgingWell attendees will once again be treated to a culinary demonstration by Mark Grohmanowner, and Executive Chef of Meridian Restaurant in Winston-Salem. Chef Grohman will be creating one of Meridian Restaurant’s signature summer dishes- Seared Black Grouper with Heirloom Tomato & Basil Relish, that is as healthy as it is delicious! While this dish is definitely worthy of a special occasion, is also easy enough for a week-day dinner.

Do you have an artistic talent that you’ve always wanted to explore? Maybe you’ve admired artwork in local galleries and thought “I could make that”. Here’s your chance to embrace the artist that lies within EVERYONE at the Sawtooth School for Visual Arts in downtown Winston-Salem! Join Sawtooth’s Executive Director, Amy Jordan as she shares an overview of the different classes that include ceramics, drawing/painting, textiles, glass, metalwork, photography, printmaking, woodworking, digital art as well as art & wellness. So, whether you are a beginner, expert or just want to shop in the gift store there is a place for EVERYONE at Sawtooth School for visual arts!
