Please join us for the January public lecture as we welcome Gary Small, MD, who will discuss "The Alzheimer’s Prevention Program."
Current research on early detection of age-related conditions like Alzheimer’s disease aims to identify candidates for prevention treatments based on the assumption that protecting a healthy brain will be more effective than attempting to repair neuronal damage once it becomes extensive.
This presentation will review available methods for prevention of the Alzheimer’s disease, as well as novel approaches that are currently in development. Learn more about the power of exercise to offset a genetic predisposition; antibodies that can clear Alzheimer’s plaques from the brain; and promising new treatments, from drugs to deep brain stimulation.
