According to the Alzheimer’s Association, one in three seniors dies with Alzheimer’s or another dementia. But just because Alzheimer’s disease is this common, it does not mean it is “normal” to lose memory as we get older. Join us for a live webinar on this important issue of health and aging, presented by Dr. Michael Lin, Associate Professor of Neurology and acting director of the Weill Cornell Memory Disorders Clinic.

While some risk factors for Alzheimer’s cannot be altered, there are some things you can do that may reduce the potential of getting Alzheimer’s disease. Dr. Lin will address the factors and lifestyle choices that may reduce risks and discuss how doctors recognize Alzheimer’s disease. In addition, he will talk about how to prepare for Alzheimer’s disease—the emotional, financial, legal, and logistical considerations.

Dr. Michael Lin received his BA from Harvard University and MD from the University of California at San Francisco.  He completed medical internship, neurology residency, and memory disorders fellowship at the Massachusetts General Hospital.  He then joined the Department of Neurology at Weill Cornell Medicine / New York Presbyterian Hospital as a Memory Disorders specialist in 1998, where he is now Associate Professor of Neurology and acting director of the Weill Cornell Memory Disorders Clinic.  He sees patients with Alzheimer disease and other memory disorders and conducts clinical trials in Alzheimer disease.  New patients and subjects interested in studies are welcome.
