1:00 p.m. in the Florida Room of the Sun City Center Atrium building.  Each year the Campaign Against Human Trafficking invites the public to see a movie that focuses on the worldwide problem of human trafficking.  The movie is shown in January which is national Human Trafficking Awareness month in the U.S.  This year’s Movie is “Stolen From the Suburbs”. “Stolen From the Suburbs” depicts the horrors of young teenagers trapped in the barbarity of human trafficking. In the movie a distraught mother teams up with a human trafficking survivor to search for and rescue her kidnapped daughter before traffickers sell the girl on the international market.  The movie helps us to recognize the efforts made by the traffickers to find their next victims and that many of those victims are our neighbors.  In conjunction with the movie, Deputy Jeffrey E. Merry, Hillsborough County Sherriff's Office, will provide us with an update on human trafficking from a law enforcement perspective.  He will also tell us about preventative measures that we can all take. One of the main goals of CAHT is to raise funds for area nonprofits that work with trafficking victims and children-at-risk in the ongoing fight to stop human trafficking in the SouthShore area.  To that end there will be a raffle held at the movie. All of this, the movie, Deputy Merry’s presentation, the raffle opportunity – AND popcorn - is FREE.  The public is invited and there is no need to RSVP.  For more information, contact 813-603-3100, visit www.SCCBlueHeart.org, or Annie Garrison at anngarrison66@gmail.com.  CAHT general meetings are held monthly on the third Monday and open to all without charge.  Due to the busy holiday season, there will not be a meeting in December.  The January general meeting is our annual movie.  Details regarding the February meeting will be published at a later date.

Beginning at 9:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. at Sun Towers Retirement Community, Suite #254. Hearing loss is associated with poor cognitive performance and incident dementia and may contribute to cognitive decline. A study found that treating hearing loss with hearing aids may ameliorate cognitive decline. The purpose of the study carried out by Piers Dawes et al was to test whether the use of hearing aids was associated with better cognitive performance and if this relationship was mediated via social isolation and/or depression. The study found that hearing aid use was associated with better cognition, independent of social isolation and depression. Make your appointment today to have your memory screened along with your hearing. By appointment only. To schedule, call the Coalition at 813-419-4902 Interested in learning more about Clinical Trials? Call the USF Health Byrd Alzheimer's Institute Mobile Clinical Trail Unit (813) 455-2512
