Tuesday, June 18, 2024 - 9:00am to 10:00am
  • Library Hall
A morning coffee break to learn more about Alzheimer's and dementia
Alzheimer's is not normal aging. It's a disease of the brain that causes problems with memory, thinking and behavior. Join us to learn about the impact of Alzheimer's, the difference between Alzheimer's and dementia, disease stages and risk factors, plus current research and FDA-approved treatments to address some symptoms. This presentation will highlight community resources as well as resources from the Alzheimer's Association for those affected by dementia.
