Texas A&M AgriLife Extension conducting Master of Memory Seminar

Many people believe that memory loss and aging go hand-in-hand: as a person gets older his or her memory begins to fail. While some change may be expected as you age, that doesn’t mean you can’t do something about it.  In the absence of a brain disease, such as Alzheimer’s Disease – you can be proactive in using some strategies and lifestyle adaptations.

Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service in Brazoria and Fort Bend County will be conducting a Master of Memory Seminar. This seminar will help you understand how your memory works and what may affect your memory. Medical conditions, medications, diet and exercise, among other things, may all play a role in how your memory works. Master of Memory will also help you identify and use strategies to improve your memory function.

Speakers will include: Andrew Crocker, M.S., Texas A&M AgriLife Specialist in Gerontology Health and Steve Andriko, Barton House. A professional panel of experts in the area of memory and Alzheimer’s disease will be available for question and answer time during the Seminar. Door prizes and goody bags will also be distributed.

If you are interested in learning more about how your memory works, come attend the Master of Memory Seminar on May 14, 2013 at the West Side Event Center, 2150 Country Place Parkway in Pearland, Texas. The seminar will begin at 10:00 a.m. and conclude by 1:30 p.m. A light lunch will be served. This seminar is free of charge.
