Alzheimer’s Seminar 

Saturday, February 5th, 2022

This is a free event.

According to the Alzheimer’s Association, an estimated 6.2 million American’s age 65 and older are living with Alzheimer’s dementia in 2021. While there is yet to be a cure for this devastating disease, emerging research indicates there are ways to both prevent and slow its progression.  This seminar is about the latest research in science-based prevention and stabilization of cognitive decline.
