The Alzheimer’s Association Dallas and Northeast Texas Chapter is presenting a Texarkana community event about the growing impact of Alzheimer’s disease on February 13 from 8:30 am to 10:30 am at the Ark-Texas Council of Governments, 4804 Elizabeth St. Texarkana, TX.
Special guest is Robbin Bass, representing U.S. Rep. John Ratcliffe's 4th Congressional District Office in Texarkana
Hosted by the Area Agency on Aging Ark-Tex Region, this collaborative event also includes Lisa Reeve, Director, ArkTex Area Agency on Aging and Cheryl Waller, Outreach Specialist/Health Educator, Texarkana-Bowie County Family Health Center.
The event is a discussion on how Alzheimer’s and other dementias are impacting every facet of society.
“As more people are diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, we need to focus more on reducing risks for cognitive decline,” says Megan Rowe, Program Manager with the Dallas and Northeast Texas Chapter of the Association. “There is still no cure for Alzheimer’s, and we need to make progress in optimizing the health, well-being and functioning of people living with dementia and their caregivers.”
Presentation topics include: Healthy Brain Initiative & Public Health Partnerships; Normal Aging vs. Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia; and Advancing Dementia Science: The Latest Updates in Research.
A light breakfast will be provided by Guardian Healthcare.
The presentation is part of the Healthy Brain Initiative: State and Local Public Health Partnerships to Address Dementia.
