Building on past successes, the seventh Second Wind Conference is scheduled for September 6, 2018. Being offered are a variety of entertaining and uplifting presentations in a supportive and accessible setting.
This year's conference is fortunate to have Mark and Alyson Connolly as the keynote speakers. Mark spent twenty-two years as a sportscaster with CBC Radio and Television before becoming a news anchor for “CBC News Edmonton” from 2010 to 2013 and now hosts “Edmonton AM.”
Mark recently covered the PyeongChang Winter Olympics in South Korea. Alyson started out as a child actor in the first musical ever produced by CTV, The Magic Trumpet. As founder of Dramatic Learning in 2004, Alyson used drama in her work with stroke and brain-injured patients at the Glen-rose Rehabilitation Hospital.
Following the keynote address, attendees are encouraged to explore new ideas, expand their knowledge base, and connect with friends and colleagues by attending a variety of interactive sessions offered by speakers from Edmonton and surrounding area. The breakout sessions will include the following presentations: Cannabis—Medicinal Properties, Senior Nutrition—Cooking for One, The Lonely Senior, Personal Directives, Dentistry and the Heart, Family Archives Using a Computer, Pain Control for Those With Arthritis, Computer and Internet Safety and Scams, and iPad, iPhone and Android Technologies. Back by popular demand are the revamped sessions on decluttering, gardening tips, ARTA benefit plan updates and golf.
A craft show and sale, featuring local artisans, will run concurrently with the conference and a ‘wine down,’ with a draw, will conclude the day.
The early bird fee of $85.00 is in effect until July 1. Fees include a light breakfast, buffet lunch, coffee breaks and the ‘wine down.’ No refunds will be issued after July 30, 2018.
