he Park City Library was packed with eager participants January 4th as CONNECT presented “The Road to a Brain Healthy Life: What’s Normal, What’s Not.” After a feast of brain-healthy snacks and encouraging opening statements given by Summit County Public Health Director Rich Bullough, participants were offered four different learning tracks: What’s Normal, or Not, for a Child, Teenager, Adult, and Senior. Four psychiatrists presented in-depth perspectives for each age group, followed by a question & answer period. If you missed the event, don’t despair!
