Keeping brains healthy and avoiding scams are the themes of AARP Utah’s next Real Possibilities University, scheduled Oct. 8 in Cedar City. AARP research has found both topics to be key concerns among Utahns age 50-plus.
Kevin Duff, a neuropsychologist and brain fitness expert at the University of Utah, will speak about coping with memory loss and staving off dementia. Keith Woodwell, director of the state Division of Securities, will address how to spot the latest scams and how fraud victims can seek redress. The evening will include break-out sessions on Social Security, wills and trusts, staying active and eating healthy.
The program is from 5 to 7:30 p.m., with check-in at 4:30 p.m. at the R. Haze Hunter Conference Center at Southern Utah University. The free event includes a light dinner, and registration is required. To register, call 877-926-8300 toll-free.
