Faith Forums on Dementia by Dr. George Schoephoerster
Everyone is invited to hear a leading local expert on dementia on two consecutive Sundays, October 15 & 22, 10:45am – 12:00 noon in the Youth Room.  Dr. George Schoephoerster, affiliated with St. Cloud Hospital and other regional medical centers, has over 34 years of experience in family medicine and geriatrics with special interest in Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.  He will share facts about dementia and also discuss how it impacts family members and other care givers.  Plan now to attend this special series and invite others you know from the community who may be interested.  If you have any questions, please contact Pastor Randy.
