Book Discussion: The
39 Keep Street
Tuesday, May. 1, 7:00 pm

Join us in the Chase Room for a discussion of the book, The End of Alzheimers, which will be led by Dr. Cathy Ostroff, who will discuss Dr. Dale Bredesen’s book. Dr. Bredesen and his team have identified 36 potential factors that contribute to cognitive decline. For the first time a person can undergo tests to discern which factors may be involved that bring about cognitive decline. Dr. Ostroff is excited to help others understand Dr. Bredesen’s discovery, and can assist individuals in this evaluation and help them normalize these markers.

     Dr. Ostroff is a graduate of SUNY and has practiced chiropractic and nutritional medicine for many years. She has held teaching positions at Morris County College, and St. Peter’s College in Jersey City.

     Read the book before the discussion so that you can really benefit from the conversation. The book, The End of Alzheimers: The First Program to Prevent and Reverse Cognitive Decline,  is widely available in the Library system.  Free. No registration required.
