Speaker: Kim Franklin | Professional Education Manager, Georgia Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association

The warning signs of Alzheimer’s disease are often dismissed as side effects 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 interactive workshop to learn the 10 Warning Signs of Alzheimer’s disease. We’ll separate myth from reality and address commonly-held fears about Alzheimer’s in America. Hear from people who have the disease and find out how to recognize the signs in yourself and others.

In this session you will:

  • Learn how to tell the difference between Alzheimer’s and typical aging – and why early detection is crucial
  • Discuss steps to take if you recognize a warning sign in yourself or someone you know
  • Review the process to receiving an Alzheimer’s diagnosis
