The figures don't lie.  In just a few years, 50% of people who reach the age of 85, will have some form of Dementia or Alzheimers.  That's a startling figure, and the problem we, as a society, are facing is how do we deal with it, and, is there a solution.

Tomorrow night, Wednesday, April 24th, there will be a free seminar about Alzheimers and Dementia, and the downtown campus of Grand Valley State University in the Loosemore Auditorium, at 6:30.

Dr. Bruno Giordani, Ph.D., Director, University of Michigan Neuropsychology will be the guest speaker.  He will be followed by a question and answer session with Dr. Giordani, along with Dr. Iris Boettcher; Karen Brugg, Mercy Health - Hauenstein Neuroscience Center; Chris Simons, Dementia Services Coordinator; and,  Chris Matzke, Brookcrest Administrator.

Even though it's a free event, reservations are a must to make sure you'll have a seat.  Call 616-453-7715 X 1125, or email
