North Suburban YMCA Announces a Variety of Free Education Programs in March
The North Suburban YMCA's popular YMCA Education Series offers a variety of new monthly virtual programming on topics related to physical, emotional and financial health. Highlights of its March offerings are "Hearing Aids and the Pandemic," cohosted with Northwestern University Center for Audiology, Speech, Language and Learning (NUCASLL) on March 2 and 11; and "Interventional Pain Management" with Illinois Bone & Joint Institute's Dr. Adam Young on March 31. All programming is free and open to the public.
"We recently changed our name from the Adult Education Series (AES) to the YMCA Education Series (Y.E.S.), to reflect our inclusive commitment to our community. The variety of new programming choices demonstrate the Y's core values of social responsibility, healthy living, and youth development," commented North Suburban YMCA's Adult Program Coordinator Karen Brownlee.
The YMCA Education Series also holds regular weekly programs including the Caregiver Support Group, Brain Games, and the Social Club, provided in part by a recent grant from the Northbrook Women's Club. Anyone interested in being a presenter can contact Kim Nyren, Director of Community Investment at email@example.com.
