As we age, concerns about memory loss or developing Alzheimer’s disease can be upsetting. What is often unknown are the steps you can take to eliminate some risks and increase your mental activity level. On Monday, July 28 at 7 p.m., as part of the new Doctor Lectures in the Community series, area residents are invited to learn about memory loss, early signs of Alzheimer’s and other diseases. Held at The Chester County Technical College High School in West Grove, the evening’s speaker is neurologist Joseph S. Handler, M.D.
Dr. Handler will present practical and relevant information that you won’t want to miss, including current medical research about warding off memory loss and practical actions for keeping the brain in top shape.
