Seniors and cannabis

While our physical doors at Orcas Senior Center remain closed due to the coronavirus, our virtual doors are opening ever wider. Starting in September, a new season of the popular Meeting of the Minds lecture series is launching by Zoom!

First up is “Seniors and Cannabis: Let’s Talk on Zoom!” featuring state-certified medical cannabis consultant, Nancy Southern. Due to the great interest in Nancy’s presentation last year, we have invited her back to update us on the facts and fictions of cannabis use. Nancy’s “educate-before-you-medicate” philosophy is born out of her own personal story as well as the latest developments in cannabis. Join Nancy with an open mind and your questions Wednesday, September 16th, 1:00 to 2:00pm.

Meeting of the Minds presentations occur on the third Wednesday of month from 1:00pm to 2:00pm, September through April. To attend, go to the Zoom Activities and Events page at www.orcasseniors.org, scroll down to the event, then click “join here.” Call-in options are available for those without the required technology.
