Recent headlines speak to an alarming increase in the incidence and prevalence of Alzheimer’s and Dementia.  This 
Brain Health Awareness talk will focus on the following questions:

·         What is normal cognitive aging?

·         What are the warning signs of cognitive impairment?

·         What can I do to keep my brain healthy?

·         If I am having concerns, what are the components of an evaluation?

·         What are the current therapies for treating these conditions? 

·         How can I be proactive in helping to find a cure?
