Free Alzheimer’s screenings

Written by 

In recognition of National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness month, Western Carolina University will offer free confidential memory screenings on Nov. 15 at the Haywood County Office Building on Elmwood Way in Waynesville.

The purpose of the 15-minute memory screenings is to promote early detection of memory loss and to provide participants with suggestions, strategies and information about brain health.

Leigh Odom, a professor in WCU’s Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders, will conduct screenings. Because of this program, Odom was recruited to be involved in the development of the Brain Gym, a new program co-sponsored by Haywood Community Connections & Haywood County Recreation Dept.

Reservation necessary. Call 828.452.6789.
