Small Discusses Alzheimer's Prevention Program
Probably one of the biggest health fears of aging adults is the possibility of Alzheimer's disease.
Dr. Gary Small, author of "The Alzheimer's Prevention Program: Keep Your Brain Healthy for the Rest of Your Life," addresses that issue in the updated version of his book.
Small will be at The Country Bookshop, in Southern Pines, Thursday, Feb. 7, at 7 p.m. to discuss the book and the program.
Small is a professor of psychiatry at UCLA's David Geffen School of Medicine and director of the UCLA Longevity Center at the university's Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior.
He and Gigi Vorgan (who is the co-author of this book) are the authors of "iBrain," "The Memory Prescription," "The Longevity Bible" and "The Memory Bible."
"It is essential for everyone with a family history of Alzheimer's, and for the 80 million baby boomers who worry whenever they forget someone's name," says a bookshop spokesman. "It's the book that shows how to strengthen memory and avoid everyday lapses."
Small is also founding director of the UCLA Memory Clinic and director of the UCLA Center on Aging. A Phi Beta Kappa, summa cum laude graduate of UCLA, he earned his medical degree at the University of Southern California.
After an internal medicine internship at Children's Hospital and Adult Medical Center in San Francisco, he completed a psychiatry residency at Massachusetts General Hospital and a clinical fellowship at Harvard Medical School.
Small then completed a geriatric psychiatry fellowship at UCLA. He has written more than 400 scientific publications.
