Memory Center Presents Aging and Your Brain Symposium

Mar 30, 2018 08:10PM

Memory Center Charlotte will present two of its experts in a special Aging and Your Brain symposium from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. on April 12 at Myers Park United Methodist Church in Charlotte. Charles H. Edwards II, M.D., will address Memory Loss – Do I Have It? and Dr. Aristides Chaconas, a neurologist, will speak on Memory Loss – I Have It! What Do I Do Now?

Topics that’ll be covered will include which areas of the brain are affected as we age; the normal age-related changes in the brain, how they manifest and when they become concerning; the practical aspects of normal cognitive aging; mild cognitive impairment, its symptoms and the difference between it and dementia, and treatment options.

“We want people to recognize that our cognitive function changes as we get older, and memory problems do not always lead to Alzheimer’s disease,” says Chaconas.

In the U.S., there are at least five million people currently living with age-related dementias, which are expected to rise as more people live longer. Knowing if you or your loved ones have dementia or Alzheimer’s disease (the most common form of dementia) is highly important.

 

Tickets: $25. Location: 1501 Queens Rd. For more information or to register, call 704-577-3186, emailing [email protected] or visit MemoryCenterCharlotte.com.
