FALL/WINTER ROUNDUP

DOROT hosted a variety of uplifting and informative events for seniors, volunteers and supporters.

In November, DOROT hosted “Modern Day Memory in a World of Distractions,” featuring Dr. Orli Etingin, a wonderfully engaging speaker who is the Lisa and Stanford Ehrenkranz Professor of Clinical Medicine at Weill Cornell Medical College and Founder and Director of the Iris Cantor Women’s Health Center. She spoke about the difference between memory loss and distraction, lifestyle changes to improve recollection, and how the use of technological devices is causing distraction and inhibiting our memories.
