Our vibrant programming is the gateway through which members gain empowering information, share experiences, and develop a deep sense of belonging to the community. At a time when older adults may find their social networks shrinking, San Francisco Village programs offer opportunities to expand. Programs are continually evolving, reflecting the interests and requests of our dynamic membership, and generally fall into one of six categories: Healthy Aging, Express Yourself, Member-Led, Connections Across Generations, Navigating Today’s World, and Exploring San Francisco.

On average, San Francisco Village hosts 30 program events per month. Take a look at our calendar and get involved!

UCSF Neuroscape Speakers Series: David Ziegler

1/18/2018 from 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM PST

RSVP to (415) 387-1375 or info@sfvillage.org
San Francisco Village is thrilled to partner with Neuroscape for a bi-monthly speaker series, with talks by faculty members, program directors, and lead research staff. Neuroscape is a translational neuroscience center at UCSF engaged in technology creation and scientific research to better assess and optimize brain function of both healthy and impaired individuals. Check out the website for more information: neuroscape.ucsf.edu.
Dr. Ziegler completed his Ph.D. in Systems Neuroscience in the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The current focus of his research is on unmasking the neural mechanisms that account for age-related changes in cognitive control and to translate these basic neuroscience findings into interventions to alleviate impairments in attention. He has a particular interest in merging complementary mind-body approaches, such as meditation and yoga, with neuroplasticity-based interventions to improve cognition while also enhancing overall wellbeing. His research has been featured in The New York Times, the Faculty of 1000, the MIT Spotlight, Nature Outlook, and in numerous regional media outlets.

Registration for this event is closed.

“It’s about staying engaged both in the home and out of the home … It’s about familiarity with others at a time in life that is rich and full of surprises, and it’s about having fun with other city-dwellers who value a common lifestyle.”
