Alzheimer's Association presents, Know the 10 Warning Signs
Wednesday, August 1, 12:30 to 2 p.m.

FREE, but registration is required. To register, please call 800.272.3900.
The warning signs of Alzheimer's disease are often dismissed as side effect of normal aging. If you or someone you know is experiencing memory loss or behavioral changes, it's time to learn the facts. Early detection gives you a chance to begin drug therapy, enroll in clinical studies and plan for the future. Attend this training to learn the 10 Warning Signs of Alzheimer's disease. We'll separate myth from reality, address commonly-held fears about Alzheimer's in America, and find out how to recognize the signs in yourself and others.
