Education Programs

The Fearrington Cares Education Committee plans programs each month at The Gathering Place from September through June.

Lectures cover a wide variety of health-related topics, such as hypertension, macular degeneration, healthful cooking, exercise, long-term care insurance, hospice, and diabetes.

Occasionally we sponsor a Lunch and Learn or a one-time seminar on a particular topic of interest.

All fall education programs will be on Zoom only.
