The Center for Vital Longevity at the University of Texas at Dallas has been in operation for a decade. To celebrate that milestone, organizers decided to celebrate its anniversary and the Center’s Founder Dr. Denise C. Park’s understanding of “what make a mind vital and how to keep it that way for life.”
As Denise described it, “The brain is giving up its secrets to us at a startling rate due to the imaging tools we have available. Yes, our aging society presents some problems. Scientists at the Center for Vital Longevity are tackling them head-on and I am confident that the CVL’s research will not only solve problems but unlock the opportunities aging represents for our society.”
To celebrate Denise’s work, it was decided to have Carole and Scott Murray co-chair an invitation-only 10th Anniversary Dinner to honor Denise and “the collective accomplishments of the faculty and staff at the Center” at the Dallas Museum of Art on Saturday, January 29.
Joining the leadership was the addition of Honorary Co-Chairs Myrna and Bob Schlegel.
But Omicron threw a wrench in the plans.
The decision was made that the event would be postponed.
According to organizers, due to the current rise of COVID-19, “We are working to identify a new date.”
