I am excited to announce that the Westchester Public Library in Indiana was been awarded funding for Community Conversations with Seniors!

Background: the Westchester Public Library has a history of working successfully with the Alzheimer’s Association and other local health organizations to host health programs. Their Community Conversations series began when they showed the Being Mortal film and convened a panel of experts for discussion after the viewing.

Project Description: The GMR is funding the showing and discussion of His Neighbor, Phil. The discussion will include local health professionals and experts and a representative from Alzheimer’s Speaks
