The Samarkand to Offer Brain-Boosting Memoir Seminar

The written word is a powerful tool in our efforts to boost brain health. You can learn how to use this tool when brain expert Dr. Linda Sasser presents “From Memories to Memoir” Wednesday, Sept. 16, 2015, at 10 a.m. at The Samarkand Retirement Community located at 2550 Treasure Dr., Santa Barbara, Calif. 93105.

Writing a memoir triggers memories and stimulates the mind, but it also has the added benefit of developing a legacy for family and friends.

During Dr. Sasser’s workshop, guests will learn the various formats of memoir writing and walk away inspired, ready to strengthen their minds while creating memoirs.

Dr. Sasser holds a Ph.D. in educational psychology and has more than 25 years of experience as a professional speaker, university professor and workshop facilitator in the areas of brain health and memory.

Reservations are required, because seating is limited. To reserve your spot, please visit www.TheSamarkand.org or call 877.231.6284.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
