“My Aging Brain: Exercise is Medicine for Your Memory”
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?

A panel of 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 will be held from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 3, in the Fogelson Auditorium at Texas Health Dallas (8200 Walnut Hill Lane, Dallas, TX 75231).

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.

“Could You or Someone You Care About Have Lung Cancer?”
Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer related death and the second most commonly diagnosed cancer in the United States. Each year, more people die of lung cancer than of breast, colon and prostate cancers combined. Please join Dr. Mark Pool, a cardiovascular surgeon on the medical staff at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas and Dr. Bijal Modi, an oncologist on the hospital’s medical staff, as they discuss lung cancer screening and prevention. They will also lead a brief discussion on the surgical and medical advances in the treatment of lung cancer.

The event will be held from 6 to 7 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 6, in the Beasley Conference Center at Texas Health Dallas (8200 Walnut Hill Lane, Dallas, TX 75231).

“Oh Baby! Tackling Infertility”
For many, deciding to have a baby is a happy and hopeful time, yet for about 15 percent of those eager couples, efforts at conception can prove disappointing. The chances of conceiving a baby can be brighter. Come join Dr. Satin Patel, an OB/GYN on the medical staff at Texas Health Presbyterian Dallas, as he discusses the treatments and techniques that can help couples overcome infertility and the number one cause of female infertility, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome.

The event will be held from 6 to 7 p.m., Wednesday, Nov. 7, in Beasley Conference Center at Texas Health Dallas (8200 Walnut Hill Lane, Dallas, TX 75231).
