Dr. Paul Nussbaum speaks to a large crowd at Belle Meade.

Three hundred people packed into the clubhouse at Belle Meade at St. Joseph of the Pines last week to be part of a presentation about brain health, given by international leader in brain health, Dr. Paul Nussbaum.

The presentation was a part of the Lifelong Learning Institute, a partnership with Sandhills Community College and St. Joseph of the Pines.

“We have gone beyond our commitment to provide intellectual wellness to the residents and colleagues of St. Joseph of the Pines ensuring meaningful learning opportunities, engaging curriculum, speakers and robust activities,” said SJP President and CEO, Steve Kastner. “We are also providing a wealth of information to the general public — free of charge. We are very proud of our leadership role in helping our community by enhancing the wellness of each person.”

St. Joseph of the Pines first brought the Glen Campbell documentary, “I’ll Be Me” to their campus last November. More than 350 people from the community came to see the North Carolina premiere of the film for free. That event, documenting Glen Campbell’s journey with Alzheimer’s disease was paired with free memory screenings for the public, also offered by St. Joseph of the Pines in collaboration with the Alzheimer’s Foundation.

Another presentation followed in the spring with Scott Herrick, a speaker from the Alzheimer’s Association and additional memory screenings. Nussbaum’s presentation was the latest effort to educate the public about aging.

St. Joseph of the Pines will be announcing more events that will be open to the public, in the weeks to come.
