You are invited to a free lecture, “Building a Dementia-friendly Community through a Framework of Faith,” featuring Dr. James M. Houston on Thursday, April 26, at 7 p.m. in Beeson Divinity School’s Andrew Gerow Hodges Chapel.

Dr. Houston, a pupil and friend of C. S. Lewis and a world-renowned scholar in Christian spiritual theology, was also the primary caregiver for his late wife, Rita, who had dementia. He brings this foundation and a most personal perspective into discussion of what the faith community can do to serve families impacted by dementia.

Dr. Houston’s lecture is co-sponsored by Beeson Divinity School, Samford's Center for Faith and Health, Cognitive Dynamics Foundation, Dementia Friendly Alabama, and the Faith United Against Alzheimer’s Coalition.
