Is It Dementia?

November 18, 2019

Join us on November 18, for a Lunch & Learn, as Eric Sigler from the Kansas University Alzheimer’s Disease Center presents on learning the difference between normal age-related concerns and when to talk to your doctor.

 

Why is it important to attend?    Knowledge is power!

 

We are truly privileged to have the KU ADC located right here in the greater Kansas City area.  In 2011, the National Institute of Aging (NIA) named the University of Kansas Alzheimer's Disease Center a nationally designated and funded Alzheimer's Disease Center. In September 2016, the NIA renewed the KU Alzheimer's Disease Center's national designation. The KU Alzheimer's Disease Center is one of just 31 such centers in the United States.  The KU ADC has a Research Division and a separate Memory Care Clinic.

 

KU ADC scientists have received international attention for research on how various lifestyle factors, including fitness and physical activity, affect normal aging and Alzheimer's disease. The Research Division brings the latest clinical trials to Kansas City and tests the newest medicines.

 

When:  Monday, November 18, 2019 from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm

 

Where: Northland Shepherd’s Center

4805 NE Antioch Rd, KC, MO 64119

 

Lunch - $5.00.  Donations accepted to offset program expenses

Medicare Fall Enrollment Period

Each year it is recommended that those receiving Medicare can review their Advantage Plans and Medicare Drug Plans. If there is a less expensive plan the consumer can change to a new plan. The new plan will become effective the first day of the new year. Trained Medicare volunteers will be available to help you make this decision. These volunteers are CLAIM Certified Medicare Advocates, and the service is free.
