“Brain Neuroplasticity”:  9:45am – 10:45am (Nelson Hall)  

Presented by:  Dr. Rolf Lulloff and Chris Vanden Hoogen, Brain Center of Green Bay

Neuroplasticity refers to the brain's ability to continue to grow, change and evolving in response to life experiences. It helps form both our good and bad habits and is the basis for all new learning, training and rehabilitation. Neuroplasticity is an active and dynamic process that occurs over our lifetime. Let’s take charge of our brains to help keep them sharp and to prevent cognitive decline!

The Brain Center of Green Bay was founded by five healthcare professionals looking to change the way people think about brain disease. Opening minds to a new, powerful approach that explores promising new research and healthy lifestyle patterns. In a world where neurodegenerative disease is relentless, progressive, and incurable, The Brain Center of Green Bay will provide hope to individuals and caregivers through personalized coaching and navigation.

Parkinson Disease Support Group:  11:00am – 12:00pm (Room 222)

“Dementia Conversations: Driving, Doctor Visits, Legal & Financial Planning”:   5:45pm – 6:45pm (Nelson Hall)

Presenter: Kate Kahles, Program Manager,  Alzheimer's Association Wisconsin Chapter

When someone is showing signs of dementia, it’s time to talk. Often, conversations with family about changing behaviors can be challenging and uncomfortable.  This program provides tips for breaking the ice with your family so you can address some of the most common issues that are difficult to discuss:  going to the doctor for a diagnosis or medical treatment, deciding when to stop driving, and making legal and financial plans for future care.                                                                                            

Holy Hour:  7pm – 8pm (Church)                                                                                                                    

End the day with the Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, beautiful music, scripture, and silent prayer.   Purple candle with be extinguished at the end of Holy hour.
