If staying well is a state of mind, Healthy Conversations challenges your mind to stay healthy! Join us for three enlightening, engaging evenings of presentations by leading local experts on health and wellness.

Alzheimer’s accounts for 60% to 70% of cases of dementia. Dr. Jason Karlawish, Professor of Medicine, Medical Ethics, and Health Policy and Associate Director of the Penn Memory Center, will discuss recent developments and ongoing research that seek to optimize the diagnosis and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease.
