Dr. Jeanette Norden, Professor Emerita in the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, discusses what is currently known about the anatomy, pathology and symptomology of Alzheimer's disease. Alzheimer's is a complex and devastating brain disorder which is a leading cause of death in the U.S. While its cause has remained elusive, several factors which increase or decrease risk have been identified. We'll focus on what we can do to keep our brains healthy and significantly decrease the risk for developing Alzheimer's. Intended for the general public with no background in biology or medicine necessary.

The second program in our Alzheimer's and Dementia Series is presented in-person in collaboration with the Alzheimer’s Association Tennessee Chapter at the Main Library in Franklin. All Library programs are free and open to the public. Call the Library at (615) 595-1243 or email reference.library@williamsoncounty-tn.gov if you have questions or want to cancel a registration.
