Dementia, exercise lecture is March 26

Mar 11, 2013

The Smoky Mountain Center Geriatric & Adult Mental Health Specialty Team is partnering with The Area Agency on Aging and Haywood Senior Resource Center to present a lecture “Dementia & Exercise” from 10 a.m. to noon Tuesday, March 26, at the Haywood Senior Resource Center, 81 Elmwood Way, in Waynesville.

The lecture is a compilation of information from National Institute of Health, National Institute on Aging, and Center for Disease Control.  The information includes two studies about the impact of exercise on dementia, what types of exercise have the most impact, how much and how often  an individual needs to exercise to possibly decrease the impact of dementia, and the intensity needed to potentiate protection against dementia.

This training is free of charge. For information, call Leslie Lawson at 356-2824.
