Speaks Out series to allow participants to experience Alzheimer's

Alzheimer’s disease, including research, caregiving and the fear of dementia, will be the topic of the Feb. 28 UNT Speaks Out program sponsored by UNT Libraries. The event begins at 6 p.m. in the Willis Library Forum.

Staff members from Arden Courts, a memory care community in Arlington, will offer a program  to allow participants to experience  both the physical symptoms of age and the cognitive symptoms of Alzheimer’s and dementia. This activity will be from 4-6 p.m. and 8-9:30 p.m. in Willis Library, Room 035.

Speakers are:

  • Meharvan Singh, professor and chair of the Department of Pharmacology and Neuroscience at the UNT Health Science Center. He will discuss “New Frontiers in Alzheimer’s Disease Research.” He will discuss the current state of the research, as well as future directions and challenges.
  • Bert Hayslip, Regents Professor in the Department of Psychology, will speak on “Caring for a Loved One with Alzheimer’s disease.” He will discuss caregiving for Alzheimer’s and dementia patients and explain the demands on the caregivers.
  • Kyle Page, a doctoral candidate in the psychology, will speak about “Fear of Dementia.” He will discuss the psychological roots of fearing a dementia disease and identify how to understand and manage related concerns.

The Greater Dallas Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association also will have a representative at the event to provide information about services available in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

  • Learn more:  Caroline Booth, director of communications and marketing for UNT Libraries, at 940-369-7573.
