Wednesday Lunch Hour - Opting Out of Dementia: Is the Choice Really Yours?

Wednesday, April 25, 2012
12 - 1 p.m.
Dewey Hall 1-305

Presented by Kathryn Douthit, associate professor and chair of the counseling and human development program

Alzheimer’s Dementia, which is likely to become the scourge of the 21st century, involves a devastating loss of cognitive and physical capacity and is a tragedy for both afflicted individuals and their caregivers.  Drawing on contemporary research in neuroscience, this presentation will consider strategies for dementia “prevention”.  In addition, it will  draw on thinking in critical biology that lends support to the notion that dementia, for many of its suffers, involves issues of social justice that relate directly to theories of prevention.
