As an introduction to The Bristal Better University lecture series, we held a kickoff event this morning. All 8 of our communities were gathered in their cinemas to get an overview of this brand new program. Maryellen McKeon, Senior Vice President of Operations for The Bristal, started the morning with a warm welcome to residents as she spoke to them via the web from the Hofstra Continuing Education offices. Senior Director of Marketing & Communications for Hofstra University Continuing Education, Debbi Honorof, then introduced Dr. Gisele Wolf-Klein of North Shore Long Island Jewish Medical Center. Dr. Wolf-Klein talked about the importance of continuing education for brain health as we age. She touched on other ways to help exercise your brain as well as some healthy foods that can help to boost brain power. Here are a few shots of the residents enjoying the BBU kickoff event.
Our first full Better U lecture is coming up in October and we’re all very excited for it!
