Healthy Aging: You Have the Power to Save Your Memory

Healthy Aging is a three-part educational series held this spring as part of the Garfield County Libraries’ 80th Anniversary Celebration. The first event, “You Have the Power to Save Your Memory,” focuses on our memory, which makes us who we are. As diseases that rob us of our valuable memories become more and more common, we need to do everything we can to protect our memory. Join Nutritional Health Coach Troye Boone at 2 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 6, at the Carbondale Library as she explores what can be done to protect your memory. For more information call the library at 970-963-2889.

Both are free and open to the public. For more information call 970-945-5958 or 970-876-5500.
