Lake County to present Elder Symposium on Sept. 28

RELEASE DATE: September 14, 2006

TAVARES — The Lake County Elder Affairs Coordinating Council is hosting the Third Annual Elder Symposium on Thursday, Sept. 28, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Lake Receptions, located at 4425 Highway 19A, in Mount Dora.

Space is limited to the first 400 participants for this inclusive symposium addressing senior issues in Lake County. This year’s theme is “Aging Gracefully with Health and Wellness.” A full agenda of dynamic speakers will present a variety of topics promoting healthy lifestyles for seniors.

The keynote address will be delivered by Dr. Todd Husty, longtime medical reporter for WESH news channel 2 and medical director of emergency medical services for Seminole County. Other speakers which will discuss different aspects of senior health and wellness include Lake County Commissioner Jennifer Hill, State Rep. Hugh Gibson III and Douglas Mason, a neurophysiologist who specializes in memory. In the 2005 book “The Memory Doctor,” he debunks memory myths, offers the cutting-edge tools for sharpening memory and provides a lay-person’s primer on the latest reports from the vanguard of memory research.

The cost to register for the symposium is $10 for individuals and $20 for professionals. Registration includes a continental breakfast and lunch. For more information or to register, call Allison Thall, Lake County Elder Affairs Director, at (352) 742-6503 or (352) 742-6525.
