Carmel AME Church in Gray Court, SC, 9:00 a.m.-12 noon. Our co-sponsor is Carolina Center for Behavioral Health. There is no cost, and all interested persons are invited to attend. The workshop will provide the opportunity for persons to visit community resource exhibits and participate in one of the following sessions:

 A Caregivers? Session with Teepa Snow, a nationally renowned dementia care & training specialist. This session will focus on helping caregivers respond effectively to individuals who have dementia. General CEU?s will be available for this two-hour session.
