Our next “First Friday” seminar will be at 1 p.m. on Friday, October 1 at the MountainView Ballroom and will feature the latest information on Alzheimer’s and Alzheimer’s Prevention by Dr. Allan Anderson, head of the Alzheimer program at the Banner Alzheimer Institute. The program is open to all SaddleBrooke residents. Attendees are encouraged to arrive early to get a parking place and a seat before we begin at 1 p.m.

Dr. Anderson leads the Alzheimer unit at Banner located in Tucson. He is part of the Preventing Alzheimer’s with Cognitive Training (PACT) research study at Banner. In addition to Banner Tucson and Banner Phoenix, the study also includes Duke Health (Duke University Health Care), Clemson Institute for Engaged Aging, the University of Florida, the University of Northern Florida, and the University of Southern Florida. This study first began in 2018, with major funding coming from the National Institute of Health and the National Institute on Aging. Information on the PACT study can be found at www.pact.org.

PACT is partnering with the Rotary Club of SaddleBrooke and the Wellness Integrated Network of SaddleBrooke to provide the latest information on Alzheimer’s as well and to locate candidates to participate in a three-year study on cognitive training to prevent Alzheimer’s. Dr. Anderson will provide information on participation in this study at the “First Friday” seminar. For more information, send an email to winsbaz@gmail.com or call (520) 339-7400.
