On April 20 Penn Memory Center Director Dr. Steven Arnold and Felicia Greenfield, LCSW, will present at "The Aging Mind 101," a workshop hosted by the LGBT Elder Initiative. Memory loss, dementia, Alzheimer’s disease and other cognitive issues present unique challenges to members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) communities as they age, and the LGBT Elder Initiative is hosting the event to address these issues. The event is part of the LGBTEI CONVERSATIONS series of informational programs, and it will address healthy aging and techniques for maintaining mental abilities, warning signs of disease states, the psychosocial implications for the patient, and issues facing their caregivers.
