Community education

The MIND Center, in partnership with the Division of Geriatrics, offers a variety of educational programs for individuals and families who are living with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias to help them understand the evaluation and diagnosis process and to enhance their knowledge to be better prepared for what will occur as the disease progresses.

We also provide education and training to the general public regarding prevention strategies and ways to promote brain wellness and healthy aging. Targeted community audiences may include older adults, the general public, or students.
