The number of older adults impacted by dementia today has profound implications for individuals, families and communities across Indiana, our nation and globally. In our third Envision Lecture, Dr. Brosch will discuss:
• Evidence for the association between lifestyle and dementia
• Updates on current Alzheimer’s research and what’s on the horizon
• Hope for the future
We also will hear from Tom Coverdale, Indiana’s Mr. Basketball who led Indiana University to the NCAA national championship in 2001. Tom will share from his family’s experience of caring for his mother, who was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s while he was at IU, and how their relationship evolved throughout his basketball career.
This is the third in CICOA’s 2019 Envision Lecture Series, which will be hosted in CICOA’s conference space at:
