Dr. Kathryn Bayles, Professor and Chair of the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders, and Dr. Kim McCullough, Associate Professor in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders, will present “Mild Cognitive Impairment: What You Need to Know” on Thursday, April 18th as part of the Faculty Presentation Series hosted by Torreyson Library. The presentation will be during x-period (1:40-2:30) in LIB 215. Light refreshments will be served.
Mild cognitive impairment (MCI) is a condition in which individuals have a memory or other thinking problem that is greater than would be expected for their age and education. Because many with MCI later develop Alzheimer’s, interest has grown in how to identify and treat MCI. Whereas risk factors such as age and genetics are beyond your control, you may be able to influence other risk factors involved in age-related cognitive decline and dementia. This presentation will provide you with the most current information regarding MCI and what you can do now to improve your brain health.
This is the final presentation in the series for the spring semester. The presentation series will resume in the fall semester beginning in September 2013.
