Introducing JFS.edu!

JFS.edu is a series of free mini-courses that are designed for the community, taught at the JCC, and drawn from Jewish Family Services’ popular topics from their more specialized programs.

JFS.edu will help you to gain a deeper understanding of issues that touch us all.

Join us on Thursday, November 2nd at 7pm for our first mini-course:

Cognitive Aging: What do we know? what can we do?

Join aging experts Lisa Gwyther, MSW, and Bobbi Matchar, MSW, MHA for an overview of cognitive and behavioral issues, alongside encouraging evidence highlighting how cognitive aging is different from Alzheimer’s disease.

Learn how to maintain optimal cognitive health with evidence-based action steps and how to communicate with those experiencing memory loss.
