Dallas Scientists to Host Free Public Symposium on Memory Loss, Aging Brain, Boosting Memory and Stamina|
DALLAS — We’ve all forgotten a name, where we put our keys, or if we locked the front door. It’s normal to forget things once in a while, but what if it’s happening more often?
Three nationally renowned experts on the aging brain, dementia and other neurological conditions associated with aging will discuss what happens to the brain as we get older. The free event, "My Aging Brain," will be held from 9 a.m. to noon on Dec. 10 and will include refreshments.
Featured presenters are Dr. Benjamin Levine, director of the Institute for Exercise and Environmental Medicine at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas, and Dr. Myron Weiner, professor of psychiatry and neurology at UT Southwestern Medical Center. They will discuss the latest in detecting and preventing memory loss and how cardiovascular health can help preserve memory.
The audience will also be encouraged to get involved in clinical trials that are helping scientists find out the best methods for detecting and treating neurological decline. To register or for more information, visit TexasHealth.org/Advances or call 1-877-THR-WELL.
