Our Rossmoor - A Great Place To Live Since 1957

Alzheimer’s – Prevention Starts Early – In Your 30s & 40s

On June 27th, we will have a presentation by Megan Witbracht, PhD. and her team from UCI MIND on Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia. She will explain the importance of early testing and implementing healthy lifestyle practices to protect the brain as we age and reduce the risk of memory problems later in life.

And prevention/extension starts early – in our 30s and 40s.

Thursday, June 27th from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at Bethlehem Lutheran Church (corner of Wallingsford and Katella) here in Rossmoor.

Join us for this no-cost, community get-together. For more than 30 years, UCI MIND has been at the forefront of Alzheimer’s disease research.

UCI MIND is home to one of the few NIH-funded Alzheimer’s Disease Research Centers in the United States and is the only Center in Orange County.

As Orange County’s Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center at the UC Irvine Institute for Memory Impairments and Neurological Disorders, UCI MIND is internationally recognized for its research accomplishments in disorders of the brain, particularly those that are age-related. UCI MIND is one of 30 designated Alzheimer’s Disease Research Centers (ADRC) funded by the National Institutes on Aging (NIA) and the only center in Orange County.

Megan Witbracht, PhD. is the Associate Director of Education for the Mind Research Unit at UCI MIND and speaks nationally on Alzheimer’s Disease, healthy brain aging, and the importance of research to combat and delay the onset of the various forms of dementia.
