Living With Dementia: New Possibilities Through Art

Carol Parsons, Mr. Lokon, Dr. Elizabeth Lokon, Glenna Baumbaugh

People with dementia may have been robbed of their memory, but not their creative capacity.  Learn about Opening Minds through Art (OMA), a groundbreaking intergenerational program, based at Miami University since 2007.  We’ll hear from its founding director, Dr. Elizabeth “Like” Lokon, MGS, Ph.D. who is also a gerontologist, educator and Senior Research Associate at Miami’s Scripps Gerontology Center.  The program’s mission is “to build bridges across ages and cognitive barriers through art.”
