This webinar is not for credit.


This one hour webinar is an archived presentation from Dr Whitehouse’s live presentation at the 24th Annual Maine Geriatrics Conference, “Where Policy Meets Practice” held on June 12, 2014 in Bar Harbor, Maine.  Dr Whitehouse discusses Alzheimer’s as a lever to change the world.  He describes how thinking deeply about dementia can enhance our collective wisdom about aging, science, brains/mind, community and our very humanity.  Words embedded in stories are key to making the necessary cognitive shifts. The words Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease are changing.  Brain health is a concept that is proving useful to reframe our thinking, especially the importance of depth (finding purpose) and breadth (finding a community).
