'Brown Bag' Discussion
A bring-your-own "brown bag" lunch discussion will be held Tuesday, Feb. 17, from noon to 1 p.m. at the Moore County Senior Enrichment Center.
Marti Quarantillo, a registered pharmacist, and Darlind Davis, director of Drug Free Moore County, will lead an informal session on issues of drug interactions, and alcohol and drug effects.
Substance abuse, including the misuse of over-the-counter or prescription drugs, currently affects about 17 percent of the older adult population.
As people age, sensitivity to alcohol increases and tolerance decreases.
Because water in the body decreases with age, alcohol (which is water-soluble) affects older people more quickly and more profoundly.
"Please bring all those questions you've been wanting to ask," says a spokesman.
Light refreshments and soft drinks will be provided.
For further information contact Davis at 255-0515.
To reserve a seat, call the Senior Enrichment Center at 215-0900. The Senior Enrichment Center is located at 8040 U.S. 15-501, two miles north of the Pinehurst Traffic Circle.
