PROGRAM BY PHONE: DIAGNOSING ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE AND MILD COGNITIVE IMPAIRMEN

If you or someone you know is experiencing changes in memory and cognition, how can you tell if it’s normal aging or something more serious? What is the difference between mild cognitive impairment, dementia and Alzheimer’s disease? Join us as we speak to board-certified neurologist Dr. Gregory Cooper to learn about the diagnostic process when cognitive issues arise.

The program will take place on Tuesday, December 11th from 1:00-2:00pm EST/12:00-1:00PM CST or recorded to listen to at a later time. To register for this program by phone, go to http://Alzphoneprograms.org.
