The free event will be held at the Johnson Foundation at Wingspread and is supported, in part, by Milwaukee's Helen Bader Foundation. The free, public event will be presented by Milwaukee Public Television as part of its NEXT AVENUE Community Conversations series.

Panelists include Dr. Michelle Braun, Neuropsychologist at Wheaton-Franciscan-All Saints; and Sina Teskey, Certified Dietician, Certified Specialist in Oncology and Eating Disorders and the writer and creator of a nutrition blog, Sina's Cupboard. Braun and Teskey will share wisdom and advice to help improve health for those over the age of 50.

The Johnson Foundation at Wingspread is located at 33 East Four Mile Road in Racine. A reception hosted by the Johnson Foundation will follow the panel discussion. Space is limited and can be reserved by calling (262) 681-3343 or by emailing bschmidt@johnsonfdn.org by June 21.
