Event to consider how to maintain brain health

Challenging your brain keeps it sharp as you age. A free event is scheduled for 10 a.m. Friday, July 11, at Whitney Senior Center, 1527 Northway Drive, St. Cloud, to learn how to maintain peak brain function as you age, and how to ward off stroke — the fourth leading cause of death nationwide.

Melissa Freese, RN, stroke care specialist, will discuss brain games — from your daily crosswords to the new Luminosity craze — to strengthen your brain.

No registration is needed. The event is sponsored by St. Cloud Hospital Stroke Center. For more information, please call 320-255-7245.
