MADISON, Miss. – March 29, at 2:30 p.m., St. Catherine’s Village will host a free seminar featuring Dr. Thomas Mosley, UMMC professor and neurological expert, who will share the latest advances in Alzheimer’s and dementia research happening now at the Medical Center’s MIND Center. The public is invited to attend.

The MIND (Memory Impairment and Neurodegenerative Dementia) Center is one of the country’s leading research and clinical care facilities working to crack the code of Alzheimer’s disease. Its mission is to uncover the underlying causes of Alzheimer’s and related dementias and to develop new treatments. Since the center opened, researchers have not only advanced the understanding of how the brain ages but also identified multiple factors that predict the development of dementia. Uncovering causes and risk factors can lead to improved management and possibly even prevention of cognitive decline with age.

“We are thrilled to have someone of Dr. Mosley’s expertise and standing speak to our residents, their families and anyone who is concerned about the cognitive health of their loved ones,” said Mary Margaret Judy, executive director at St. Catherine’s Village.

St. Catherine’s offers two facilities for memory care: Campbell Cove and the Hughes Center. Both are licensed by the State of Mississippi as “Alzheimer’s Assisted Living” facilities.

The seminar is free to the public and will be held in the Commons Activity Room at St. Catherine’s Village, 200 Dominican Drive in Madison. Space is limited so reservations are required. To ensure a seat, call (601) 856-0123, email village@stdom.com or log onto www.StCatherinesVillage.com.
