The CHANEYspeaks Caregiving Advocacy Corporation is co-sponsoring the Brain Health & Healthy Aging Community Forum on Saturday, March 24, from 10 a.m.–1 p.m. at Real Life Christian Ministries, Inc. at 6018 John Douglass Drive, Chattanooga. The free community forum, presented by the Balm in Gilead Organization, is for anyone 50 and older; and for those who love and care about them.
This forum will provide important information and tools for the development and maintenance of optimal mental, social and physical well-being and function in older adults. The event aims to ensure that these individuals have access to information about important vaccinations, such as the pneumococcal vaccine, which protects against pneumococcal disease. Less than half of African Americans ages 65 and older are not vaccinated against this potentially life-threatening disease.
“The Balm In Gilead is excited to bring this very important initiative to Chattanooga,” said Pernessa Seele, CEO and founder of the Balm In Gilead. “It is so critical that we educate our community about healthy aging, getting vaccinated and living healthier lives.”
“CHANEYspeaks is proud to partner with the Balm In Gilead on this initiative,” said Christopher-Charles Chaney, CEO of CHANEYspeaks. “It is so important for our aging population is informed about the availability of resources to help them live a healthier lifestyle.”
