When should we be concerned about memory changes?
Is it the first sign of dementia, or is it simply normal aging?
In recognition of National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month, this program will discuss cognitive changes in normal aging versus what is cause for concern; when to seek an evaluation; the importance of early diagnosis; and the latest research on Alzheimer’s disease. Attendees will also have an opportunity to meet with representatives from local organizations serving families affected by Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias including: the Alzheimer’s Family Support Center of Cape Cod; the Alzheimer’s Association of MA/NH; and Hope Dementia.

He received his M.D. from Harvard Medical School, completed an internship in Internal Medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and was Chief Resident in Neurology at the Harvard-Longwood Program.
