Aging, Memory Loss, and Dementia: What can we do to help ourselves? Presented by: Stella Karantzoulis, Ph.D., ABPP-CN

 This talk will help the audience understand how memory loss is objectively evaluated in older adults (“what kind of a doctor do I need to see?” “what tests do I need to take?”) and what treatment options are offered (“What does the medicine really do for my memory?” and “Is there anything other than medicine that can help me to improve my memory?”).  Lifestyle factors will be reviewed for their potential to improve cognitive aging and there will be an emphasis on non-pharmacological treatment approaches to improving one’s level of cognitive functioning. "Memory Matters”  is a program of the Department of Geriatrics and Palliative Medicine, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai funded by UJA. Sign up at the front desk or call 212-243-3670.
