Memory loss and aging: When to worry and what to do about it

Tuesday, March 19, 2019
7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

What happens to memory as you get older? How can you distinguish changes that are considered normal from those that are worrisome? What can you do to prevent or minimize the changes that can lead to memory decline and even Alzheimer Disease? Come hear the answer to these and other questions.

Our public event, Memory loss and aging: When to worry and what to do about it, will feature one of Baycrest’s newest recruits, Dr. Howard Chertkow, a remarkably distinguished cognitive neurologist. Dr. Chertkow is the RRI Chair in Cognitive Neurology and Innovation, RRI Senior Scientist, Director of the Kimel Family Centre for Brain Health and Wellness, and Director of the new Clinical Trials Unit at Baycrest. He is also the Scientific Director of the Canadian Consortium on Neurodegeneration in Aging.

A panel discussion will follow Dr. Chertkow’s talk, featuring other experts in the field, as well as individuals with lived experience.

Interested attendees should RSVP separately at this link.
