The March 25 lecture has been canceled.
The Sherrill House Board of Visitors, in partnership with the Center for Alzheimer’s Research and Treatment at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, will offer the first in a three-part lecture series on "Aging and Memory Loss" on Wednesday, March 25, 4-6 p.m., at Sherrill House (135 South Huntington Avenue) in Jamaica Plain.
Dr. Jeremy Pruzin, Behavioral Neurology Fellow at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, will present this first lecture, "Roadmap to Dementia Diagnosis." Pruzin has a particular interest in how lifestyle modifications and vascular risk factors in midlife affect future risk of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. His work focuses on implementing prevention strategies decades before the average age a person is at risk for cognitive decline.
Upcoming lectures, "Roadmap to Research Participation" and "Roadmap to Caregiving" will be offered in April and May with dates to be determined.
