Memory changes program

Dear fellow Hanoverians:

South Shore Conservatory, in partnership with the Alzheimer’s
Association, presents a free South Shore AlzTalks program “Changes in
memory: When to be Concerned and What to do About Them” on Tuesday,
October 1, 6:30 p.m., at the Laura Center for the Arts, 97 Mill Street in

Every 65 seconds, someone in the United States develops Alzheimer’s
disease. Alzheimer’s is a burden on those living with the disease, their
caregivers, our health care systems and the local and federal governments.
According to the Alzheimer’s Association, Alzheimer’s and other
dementias will cost the nation $290 billion, including $195 billion in
Medicare and Medicaid payments.
The October 1 event is focused on keeping local communities informed on the
latest in Alzheimer’s and dementia research. “AlzTalks is our way of
giving the public a chance to hear from a local leading researcher on where
we are today and what is on the horizon for the future,” said Wessler.

Featured speaker Margaret O’Connor, PhD. shares information on brain
changes associated with memory loss and different types of dementia, early
detection, progress in clinical trials, risk factors and lifestyle
interventions. Also included in the discussion is a spotlight on Dr.
O’Connor’s research focusing on helping people determine optimal
interventions to support brain health such as lifestyle modifications and
cognitive strategies.

The AlzTalks program is free and open to the public, but registration is
encouraged. To register, call 800.272.3900 or visit
