SH: Alzheimer's workshop just a phone call away
The Alzheimer Society of B.C. is holding a free workshop on Thursday from 7 to 8 p.m., and participants don't have to leave the comfort of home to attend.
Heads Up: An Introduction to Brain Health is a tele-workshop, which means it can be accessed by telephone.
Participants can link to the workshop by calling the toll-free number 1-866-994-7745 a few minutes prior to 7 p.m. and entering passcode 1122333.
The target audience includes people with early symptoms of dementia, caregivers and anyone else interested in Alzheimer's disease and how it affects the brain.
Discussion will also include the latest research on reducing risk for Alzheimer's, and everyday tips for improving brain health.
There will also be accompanying online images at momentum.adobeconnect.com/alzheimerbc. Web viewers can enter as a guest.
SH: Campus radio station seeks volunteers
Thompson Rivers University's CFBX radio station starts its fall volunteer drive on Friday, Sept. 7.
The volunteer-run station broadcasts a diverse mix of musical and spoken-word programming for which it needs an energetic and creative team of on-air and off-air volunteers.
CFBX is particularly in need of volunteers for morning shows, late-night shows, and anyone interested in programming in a language other than English.
For more information, call 250-377-3988, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the station at House 8, behind the Campus Activity Centre on the TRU campus.
SH: Funds raised toward Lyme disease research
The family and friends of a young man who lost his life in May have raised over $3,500 in his name toward charity.
The Michael Benjamin Kirkey Memorial Golf Tournament was held earlier this month. The funds will be donated to the Dr. E. Murakami Centre for Lyme, which strives to help those suffering from Lyme disease.
Kirkey died after suffering an accidental gunshot to his arm during a stag party at Scuitto Lake and while being driven to meet the ambulance, was in a vehicle rollover. The TRU student was only weeks away from graduating.
