Kiwanis learns about brain-healthy lifestyle

Published 10:10 am Friday, February 10, 2012

Regina Fargis, community relations director for Emeritus at Skylyn Place in Spartanburg, S.C., is a motivational speaker who spoke to the Tryon Kiwanis Club on Jan. 11 about having a brain-healthy lifestyle. As a volunteer for the Alzheimer’s Association, she is well informed about dementia – what she calls “the bandit that robs a family of its history.” She said she wants to motivate people to preserve their stories so that families will always have them. She also recommended several ways to help keep dementia at bay: mental stimulation, socialization, physical activity, good nutrition and spirituality. Kiwanian Bob Scruggs invited Fargis to speak.
