TYLER (KYTX) - ETMC will offer a free KnowledgeFirst Forum at noon Tuesday, March 5, in the ETMC Pavilion in Tyler on dementia presented by Dr. Allison Hennigan, general neurologist and clinical neurophysiologist with the ETMC Neurological Institute.
"Dementia refers to a decline in mental ability severe enough that it interferes with a person's ability to perform everyday activities," said Dr. Hennigan. "Memory loss is often associated with dementia. However, many people have memory issues, but do not have dementia."
Dr. Hennigan will discuss the signs and symptoms, causes, diagnosis and treatment options.
A light lunch will be served. Free parking is available next to the Pavilion, located at 801 Clinic Drive in Tyler. The gate opens at 11:30 a.m. Please pre-register by calling 800-648-8141 and press 2.
