Have you ever wondered if your aging loved one can still drive safely? The Vanderbilt Child and Family Center will host a lunch and learn event discussing this topic from noon to 1 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 17, in Medical Center East, Room 8380A. Please feel free to bring your lunch.

The Vanderbilt Bill Wilkerson Center’s Christy Horner will address safety concerns related to older drivers. Topics will include aging and driving, warning signs, and specific methods for broaching this topic as a family before and when safety concerns arise. Horner will present evaluation services provided by the Bill Wilkerson Center’s Driver Rehab Program and discuss ethical considerations that may arise when driving restrictions are recommended. She also will offer transportation alternatives.
