The Penn Memory Center is now registering participants for our Spring Journaling Group:
Thursdays April 24 – May 29, 2014
Our spring journaling course begins on April 24 and will focus on the emotional challenges of “decluttering.” Classes will be held on Thursdays, April 24 through May 29, from 10am – 12pm and will be facilitated by Michelina Mucci-Deming, M.S.W., a Normal Control research participant in the PMC longitudinal NACC study.
Ms. Mucci-Deming is a certified instructor in the Journal to the Self ® method of therapeutic writing founded by Kathleen Adams, Director of the Center for Journal Therapy. Ms. Mucci-Deming recently retired from her practice in social work with the purpose of connecting the power and benefits of journal writing to a wider audience.
This journaling course is free to the PMC network and will be held at Ralston House, 3615 Chestnut Street, Room 346.
For more information and to register, please contact Barbara Overholser at firstname.lastname@example.org or 215-898-8997.
Do you have a passion, talent, or skill that you would like to share with others?
Research tells us that cognitive stimulation and social engagement are key components to successful aging. The Penn Memory Center is pleased to provide a platform for our patients and community to come together and learn from one another. If you would like to volunteer to lead a book club or a discussion group, teach knitting, lead a yoga class, or share another skill with others at the Penn Memory Center, we are happy to host, promote and provide some administrative assistance to transform your interest into action.
Interested volunteers should contact Felicia Greenfield at 215-614-1828 or email@example.com.
