What is Ruby and Sandy Talk It Out? It is an informative topic discussion session that is facilitated by two of FACES’ long time Board members, Sandy English and Ruby Fitzgerald.

Ruby and Sandy would also like for you to suggest topics that are important to you. Our goal is to learn and share ideas so we have more tools in our tool box when caring for our loved ones. If you have a topic that is important to you, please email Ruby and Sandy at facesorg1@verizon.net.
