The Spotlight Series events will be held once a quarter throughout 2019, on the last Tuesday of January, April, July, and October at various locations.

Each event will begin with appetizers, refreshments and networking followed by presentations by the experts and question-and-answer sessions with audience members.

“We are looking forward to opening the Spotlight Series this year with a focused discussion on grief,” said Centerstone Director of Advancement Jocelyn Popit.

In September of 2016, Centerstone launched “Centerstone Spotlights,” a new educational series designed to highlight key behavioral health topics affecting our community.

Past Spotlights have been on Suicide Prevention, Caring for Aging Adults, and Substance Abuse.

“Each Spotlight Series discussion will feature a panel of experts from the surrounding area, and we really think this will showcase the strength of our community and our ability to work together to address issues in our own backyards,” Popit said.

Popit and Chelsea Boyles, Centerstone Marketing Specialist, will serve as the event’s moderators.
“These events have historically been well-attended, with lively discussion and focused questions,” Popit said.
The event is free. People should RSVP through the event’s Facebook page at bit.ly/CSS-Grief. For more information, contact Dalus Ben Avi or call (855) 608-3560, ext. 7830.
