Science of Hope: Progress Towards a World without Alzheimer’s Disease

Joan Johnson invites you to a succinct 30 minute presentation by Kelsey Gosselin who is the Medical Scientific Manager of our Massachusetts/NH Alzheimer Chapter. She is a gifted speaker and will entertain questions of a general nature after her presentation.  The planning committee of the event has decided we will do without refreshments for this presentation. Bring your water bottle with you if you are a water drinker, or there will be water available in the kitchen adjacent to the Fellowship Hall. Please RSVP to Joan Johnson if you are coming. Thank you. Below is a summary of the focus of the presentation.

Science of Hope: Progress Towards a World without Alzheimer’s Disease

Learn about the latest in Alzheimer’s disease and dementia research. A better understanding of the underlying brain changes caused by Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias has enabled the development of better detection methods. Learn how this knowledge is being translated into novel therapies and prevention strategies. Recent research estimates that over one third of global dementia cases may be preventable through addressing lifestyle factors such as diet and exercise, so steps you can take that may reduce your risk of cognitive decline will also be discussed.
