Alzheimer’s Dementia: New Hope for Prevention and Cognitive Restoration

Presenter:  James Graves, Ph.D., Psy.D.

Abstract:

Alzheimer’s Dementia (AD) has been considered to be a terminal neurodegenerative disease. However, recent research has demonstrated that AD may be preventable and, in at least some cases, measurable cognitive function may be restored. This presentation will address the causes of AD, its risk factors, and the lifestyle interventions needed to prevent or reverse the degenerative process.   

Learning Objectives:  After attending event, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe the genetics and pathophysiology of late-onset Alzheimer’s Dementia (AD) as well as the most likely underlying cause (i.e., neuroinflammation) of most cases of AD.
  2. Utilize simple survey tools that identify cognitive and lifestyle status related to the risk of AD.
  3. Apply lifestyle interventions that can help in preventing or potentially restoring cognitive function in AD.
