As you grow older, you may find yourself worrying about your memory. Where did I put those car keys? What time was my appointment? What was her name again? With more than 41 million Americans over the age of 65 in the United States, the question becomes how much (or, perhaps, what type) of memory loss is to be expected as one gets older and what should trigger a visit to the doctor. Join Dr. Andrew Budson for this virtual Zoom talk where he will discuss his award-winning book, Seven Steps to Managing Your Memory: What’s Normal, What’s Not, and What to Do About It, which explains how individuals can distinguish changes in memory due to Alzheimer's versus normal aging, what medications, diets, and exercise regimes can help, and the best habits, strategies, and memory aids to use, in seven simple steps. He will also discuss his newest book, Six Steps to Managing Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia: A Guide for Families, including how families can manage issues with memory, language, vision, behavior, driving, incontinence, sleep, and more.

Andrew E. Budson, MD, majored in chemistry and philosophy at Haverford College before receiving his medical degree from Harvard Medical School. Dr. Budson is Professor of Neurology at Boston University, Lecturer in Neurology at Harvard Medical School, and Chief of Cognitive & Behavioral Neurology at the Veterans Affairs Boston Healthcare System. His career combines education, research, and clinical care to help those with memory disorders.
