AARP Virginia is proud to announce a series of upcoming “Virtual Community Conversations” that will take place via Zoom. The first event in this series will be with VCU Health Hub at 25th on the subject of caregiving. Regardless of what stage of family caregiving you’re at—just beginning to anticipate a need, helping to coordinate a big move, or taking care of a family member full-time—having a good framework to help guide both you and your loved one will make the process easier. This virtual event will take place on Tuesday, May 26th from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. and will be hosted by AARP Virginia Community Ambassador, Russell Schiavone. Registration is required and can be done here.

The second event in the series is titled “The Six Pillars of Brain Health” and will take place on Tuesday, June 2 from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. During this interactive session, you will learn about the six pillars of a brain-healthy lifestyle, share your brain-boosting activities, and be inspired by others. This session, hosted by AARP Virginia Community Ambassador, Mike D’Ostilio, is a good overview for anyone interested in improving their brain health and will provide you with actionable steps you can take. Registration is required and can be done here.

The third virtual event called “Diabetes in the African American Community,” is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, June 9th from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. Unlike the other events, the guest speaker will be a health professional from VCU Health Hub at 25th and not an AARP Community Ambassador. At some point in the session, a 10 minute clip from the “Blood Sugar Rising” PBS Special will be shown. The link to that can be found here. Registration is required and can be done here.

The final event in the series is entitled “Fraud and Identity.” In this session, the AARP Fraud Watch Network will share an inside look at how scammers think, how to safeguard against identity theft and fraud, firsthand accounts from victims, and what to do if you or someone you know has been a victim. Hosted by AARP Virginia Community Ambassador, Michelle Evans Oliver, this event will occur on Tuesday, June 16th from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. Registration is required and can be done here.
