Do you find yourself forgetting names, wondering what you are looking for, or have trouble retrieving that thought? You are not alone. Join Alina Carter, MS, CCC-SLP, Speech-Language Pathologist at Emerson Hospital for an informative talk on November 15 about key strategies for keeping the mind sharp and healthy at every age. 

The Brain Fitness: Tips for a Healthy Mind workshop is hosted by The Thoreau Club, as part of the Club’s HealthyCare lecture series and monthly workshops on wellness topics. This event is free, open to the public and will take place on Wednesday, November 15 from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at The Thoreau Center, 275 Forest Ridge Road, Concord.

Ms. Carter will discuss typical cognitive-linguistic changes in the brain as you age.  In addition, she will share research on techniques and strategies to help promote a healthy mind. There will be ample time for audience questions following her presentation. In her work at Emerson, Ms. Carter evaluates and treats adult patients with language, cognitive and speech deficits that result from traumatic brain injury, stroke, brain tumors and neurodegenerative processes.
