Brunch in Brazil: Dine with a Doc, is an event that welcomes the local senior public to get to know the doctor(s) of the month while enjoying a free brunch. Each doctor has donated time in effort to listen, hear and answer medical questions while sharing a meal.
The program was designed to allow seniors to get out of their homes, fellowship with peers, extend their available financial resources, promote enhanced living and educate (from a preventative standpoint) with the goal of ensuring their quality of life and providing them with the resources and information to make an informed choice about their healthcare and hopefully select a physician.
Various community businesses also participate by donating door prizes or providing complimentary lunches and learn about ways they may help seniors.
Those interested in attending do not need to be a member of the senior center. There is no cost to attend the program. For more information regarding the event, call 448-8848.
