MASHPEE — To keep communities informed on the latest in Alzheimer’s and dementia research, the Alzheimer’s Association will host an AlzTalks regional research presentation on June 26.
“Because of this trajectory and the impact of Alzheimer’s disease on families, finding meaningful treatment and a cure is one of our top priorities,” said Jim Wessler, president and CEO of the Alzheimer’s Association, Massachusetts New Hampshire Chapter, in a statement. “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.”
Beginning at 6:30 p.m. at the Willowbend Country Club, 305 Quinaquisset Ave., the program will feature speaker Rhoda Au, PhD, who has been involved in research related to cognitive aging and preclinical dementia since 1990. Most recently, she has integrated digital technology into the cognitive assessment process.
The AlzTalks program is free and open to the public, but registration is encouraged. To register call 800.272.3900 or visit alzmassnh.org/alztalks.
