MEMORY LOSS AND THE BRAIN
Sunday, April 10, 2016, 12:45 PM, Board Room
Our presenter for this important HOT TOPIC is Allan Bernstein, M.D., a neurologist with decades of experience teaching, conducting research and treating patients. Dr. Bernstein’s innovative approaches and drug trials have led to new treatments than can arrest further damage in Alzheimers, Parkinson’s, and other memory disorders. Currently focused on Alzheimer’s disease in his research, he is able to report that “…the newer diagnostic tools and the newer medicines in trial have created an opportunity to finally see progress in slowing, possible stopping and maybe even reversing the devastation of this illness.” Dr. Bernstein will include a discussion of how to keep our brains healthy and how to recognize when something is starting to go wrong. “The earlier we can spot the ‘first slip’ the more likely some of our newer treatments will be effective.” This presentation promises to be informative and timely for all of us, either personally or as related to those we know and love. A light lunch will be available for a donation.
