The Bowers Museum proudly announces its continuation of our education series with Hoag Neurosciences Institute’s Orange County Vital Aging Program (OCVAP) to bring exciting learning opportunities about our brain and the effect of art and other creative activities on cognitive health. OCVAP promotes education and life-long learning, risk factor management, and early intervention to help our community maintain their cognitive health. Programs will be led by Dr. William R. Shankle, the Judy and Richard Voltmer chair in Memory and Cognitive Disorders, program director of Memory and Cognitive Disorders, Hoag Neurosciences Institute and Director of the OCVAP. Dr. Shankle is a board certified neurologist specializing in Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders (ADRD).
