Dr. Galvin Zoom talk

Zoom Talk April 16, 2023

The Wellesley Class of 1970 invites the members of '72 to a Zoom talk on Sunday, April 16, 2023, at 3:00 p.m., when Dr. James E. Galvin will speak on “Building a Better Brain as We Age”. The webinar will last about 90 minutes, with Dr. Galvin speaking first and then lots of time for Q&A. YOU MUST REGISTER FOR THIS WEBINAR – SEE BELOW.  

According to the National Institute on Aging, “Older age does not cause Alzheimer’s, but it is the most important known risk factor for the disease. The number of people with Alzheimer’s disease doubles about every 5 years beyond age 65. About one-third of all people age 85 and older may have Alzheimer's disease.” We want to be in the 66%!

Dr. Galvin is a recognized expert in the field. He is the Founding Director of the Comprehensive Center for Brain Health and Professor of Neurology and Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Miami School of Medicine. He has published more than 275 peer-reviewed papers in top-tier scientific journals. Dr. Galvin’s research focuses on new approaches to study brain health. He holds 13 copyrights for instruments used across the world for assessing the risk of cognitive impairment.

Here is a video of Dr. Galvin being interviewed at the Alzheimer’s Association Convention ’22:

I know Dr. Galvin personally so I can say with confidence that you will appreciate his expertise, communication skills and passion for his field of research. He will talk about:

·       What is normal forgetfulness as we age vs. a potential cognitive impairment?

·       How does he assess potential cognitive impairment?

·       What are the possible early treatments for cognitive impairment?

·       What can we all be doing now to keep our brains as sharp as possible?

Please join us. Register by clicking HERE and I will send you the Zoom link with the Passcode required to join. Other clubs/classes are invited to attend as well so questions need to be entered in the Q&A/Chat or sent to me in advance.

Building the new SHEconomy

Please join us Thursday, June 23, for “Building the new SHEconomy,” a virtual panel featuring Hillary Rodham Clinton ’69 and Paula A. Johnson!

It took a global pandemic to introduce flexibility and balance to the workplace. The ability for some women to work from home initially presented itself as a boon to women who have struggled to find work-life balance for decades. But that flexibility hasn’t been enough to offset the economic toll the pandemic has taken on women in the workplace. Women’s participation in the labor force has plunged to its lowest level in decades. As employers reintroduce on-site work, women are forced to choose between giving up some of the balance they have gained by working from home and their caregiving responsibilities. Young women entering the workforce are facing the additional challenge of navigating the perception of in-person work as being more present while establishing their boundaries.

Presented by Economist Impact and sponsored by Wellesley College, this panel discussion convenes business leaders and policymakers to contemplate a new status quo that supports women in the workforce.
