The Greenwood Senior Center has several upcoming events that might be of interest.

Brown Bag Pharmacy Event from 11: 30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., Wed., May 16. If you have questions about your medications, you can reserve a 30-minute medicine-review appointment with Seattle Pacific University senior nursing students. A pharmacist will be available for consultation. Please bring all the medications, vitamins and supplements you take, even those you don’t take every day (please leave in the original containers). Reservations are required by calling the Greenwood Senior Center at 206-297-0875 by Monday.

Self Management of Chronic Conditions, with Carin Mack, MSW, and Katherine Segura, from 9:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Thursdays, May 17-June 21. Free, six-week course for those with a chronic illness to learn how to better manage their health. Registration is required by calling 206-297-0875 by Monday.

And coming up at 3 p.m. on Saturday, June 9, a special benefit movie screening of “Old Goats.”

From local writer-director Taylor Guterson, Old Goats is the often hilarious and always heartfelt story of three older men who refuse to go quietly into the night of retirement and old age.

Cost is $15, which includes a reception with the director and some of the actors. All proceeds benefit the GSC. To reserve your tickets, call 206-297-0875.

The Greenwood Senior Center is at 525 N. 85th St.
