The Reality of Vaping: How It Began & Where We Are Headed (Wednesday, Dec 5, 2018 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm)

Join us for this one night event to discuss vaping and trends in teen substance abuse. In partnership with the Caron Foundation and JumpSpark Atlanta. Vaping is a reality in the lives of our teens today. In fact, about 13% of 8th graders, 24% of 10th graders, and nearly 28% of 12th graders at U.S. schools reported using a vaping device in the past year, according to data from the 2017 Monitoring the Future survey. There is a huge disconnect between the level of use among teen in our community and the information and resources parents have on the subject. Help us change that for the parents of Jewish teens in Atlanta. 

Special guest Dean Monteleone will speak from his deep well of experience about vaping, teen trends with drugs and alcohol and give participants tools and strategies for taking this information home.

There is no charge to attend, but registration is required.

If you’ve been recently diagnosed, or are recognizing symptoms of early memory loss, we can help maintain and enhance your memory and brain function.

Our program emphasizes memory enhancement through cognitive stimulation, physical exercise, education, and socialization. You will have the opportunity to connect with others who are experiencing many of the same situations you are going through. The fun and meaningful brain and body exercises are conducted in a small group setting and are led by professionals experienced in the field of aging. Research shows brain fitness type activities, along with regular exercise, and social engagement can maintain brain function for a longer period of time in someone with a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s Disease or other related dementia, compared to someone that does not participate in cognitive, physical and social type activities. Early intervention can help.
