Know the 10 Signs of Alzheimer's @ NIS

Presenter: Meagan DeMento, Program Manager, Alzheimer's Association

The warning signs of Alzheimer’s disease are often dismissed as inevitable parts of normal aging. If you or someone you know is experiencing memory loss or behavioral changes, it’s time to learn the facts. 

Early detection is the key to improving quality of life for anyone affected by memory impairment. Attend this interactive workshop to learn the 10 Warning Signs of Alzheimer’s disease where we separate myth from reality and address commonly-held fears about Alzheimer’s and dementia. 

Hear from people who have the disease and find out how to recognize the signs in yourself and others. Appropriate Audience - Anyone who is interested in learning the warning signs of Alzheimer’s, and information about Alzheimer’s disease.

Marsha Lazarus brings a wealth of career readiness and workplace training experience.  She is especially proud of her ability to assist individuals to more fully recognize their strengths, what excites them and those positions that match these qualities/values.  She also has an excellent track record of connecting job seekers who have stayed engaged in the job-seeking process to well-matched job opportunities. She recently left her position as the Director of Workforce Development with the Mental Health Association in N.Y.S.

In today's HALF HOUR 1-on-1 sessions, Marsha Lazarus will go over your resume and help you with career/workplace coaching.

Marsha Lazarus brings a wealth of career readiness and workplace training experience.  She is especially proud of her ability to assist individuals to more fully recognize their strengths, what excites them and those positions that match these qualities/values.  She also has an excellent track record of connecting job seekers who have stayed engaged in the job-seeking process to well-matched job opportunities. She recently left her position as the Director of Workforce Development with the Mental Health Association in N.Y.S. (MHANYS) to devote herself full-time to career coaching and training through her organization “Your Career Fit Matters.”  Prior to coming to MHANYS, Marsha oversaw “CareerLinks:  Creating Opportunities that Last, Inc.” for ten years, an agency that she started.  For at least fifteen years prior to that, she provided one-on-one and small group employment services to adults and young adults with varied interests, educational levels and challenges to entering the workplace.
