Southwest Fort Worth AARP

MAY 20

For a change of pace, we have James Ward Lee, folklorist, humorist presenting an entertaining and interesting program. Mr. Lee has authored many books, articles and papers. He is a regular book reviewer for the Fort Worth Library, so you don't want to miss this fun packed morning!.


The future holds a program from Dr. Janice Knebl, head of the Division of Geriatrics at TCOM UNT Health Science Center. Dr. Knebl is a national authority on how we age. Many of the findings may surprise you. Also, the Health Science Center offers a unique program for seniors where 2 student doctors and 1 pharmacy student are assigned for 2 years and come to the seniors home. This program educates both the senior and the students. Your wed-master has been enrolled for 3 years and can highly recommend this fine program.


Our Chapter keeps up with programs adopted by Tarrant County College's senior education offerings and our city and so we will have Blue Zone Project Neighborhood Team Manager come explain how implementing this can lead to a longer, healthier life. We will have two pot luck luncheons which include a program, and a favorite of all Dr. Alan Saxe. This hard working committee is exploring a program to learn about the new Will Rogers Arena as well as a special veteran's program. So stay 'tuned' for more details and additional programs!

Remember to receive information making you an informed voter, to learn about the advantages of our golden years, and many other interesting topics be sure to attend our chapter meetings.

Please join us at our meetings on the third Wednesday of each month (except December is held on the 2nd Wednesday). We meet at Genesis United Methodist Church, 7635 South Hulen Street in Fort Worth with coffee at 10 a.m. and the meeting from 10:30 to 11:30.
