The Friends of the Talbot County Free Library will begin the 2013-14 Brown Bag Lunch Speaker series at noon on September 19 at the Easton Branch with a talk by Jason Karlawish, MD, entitled “What We Talk about When We Talk about Alzheimer’s.” Dr. Karlawish is a Professor of Medicine, Medical Ethics and Health Policy at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine in Philadelphia, PA.
There is no charge for this public program sponsored by the Friends of the Talbot County Free Library. Guests are invited to bring their lunch if they like or just come to listen. Coffee and sweets will be provided. The talk will take approximately one hour, and there will be time for questions.
Dr. Karlawish will explain these basic concepts and then go the next step to reflect on why these questions persist. What we talk about when we talk about Alzheimer's disease reveals the challenges we face when we try to draw distinct borders between normal brain aging and disease.
Event begins at 12:00PM
