“Health Conversations”

Tuesday, November 1, 2016 - 6:30pm

Alzheimer’s disease is one of the leading causes of death in the U.S., yet it is often overshadowed in media coverage by cancer and other disorders. Dr. Orly Avitzur, medical director of Consumer Reports Health and editor-in-chief of Neurology Now, digs to the root of problem, discussing this important health issue.

The public talk is moderated by Dr. Joseph I. Sirven, a neurologist at the Mayo Clinic’s campus in Arizona who also chairs the Seniors and Seizures Task Force for the Epilepsy Foundation of America. Avitzur will chat with Sirven and the audience via a live video feed.
