The Breakthrough Series (formerly known as Lunch and Learn) presented by The Center for Volunteer Caregiving will kick off its 2019-20 talks on Tuesday, November 19 starting at 1:30 pm at the Five Points Center for Active Adults, 2000 Noble Road, Raleigh. The theme for 2019-20 is “Caregiver Perspectives”.

On November 19 and in observance of Veterans Day, we welcome Mary Ward Hahn and Karee White. Mary and Karee are military caregivers who are part of the Hidden Heroes Program created by the Elizabeth Dole Foundation. Hidden Heroes brings vital attention to the untold stories of military caregivers and seeks solutions for the tremendous challenges and long-term needs they face. Raleigh is part of the Hidden Heroes Cities and Counties Program, a growing network of cities and counties working to better serve military caregivers and share best practices. Mary and Karee will share with us their stories of challenge and courage. Check out Mary now on her podcast – “This Caregiver Life”.

Once again, Waltonwood Lake Boone will provide healthy refreshments. Many thanks to Waltonwood for feeding our bodies while we feed our minds!
