President Ronald Reagan proclaimed November as Alzheimer’s Awareness Month in 1983, and organizations around the country support this through workshops and programs throughout November to this day. This year the Huntington City-Township Public Library will host two speakers on the subject.

Professor Richard Gunderman, MD, Indiana University Chancellor’s Professor of Radiology, Pediatrics, Medical Education, Philosophy, Liberal Arts, Philanthropy and Medical Humanities and Health Studies will speak on the role of caregivers and caregiving for those with Alzheimer’s on Thursday, November 7 at 6 p.m. at the Huntington Main Library.

A spokesperson from Alzheimer’s Association will host a workshop titled “Understanding Alzheimer’s and Dementia” at the Huntington Main Library on Monday, November 18 at 6 p.m. This talk is geared towards those facing a diagnosis themselves or for a loved one and anyone who wishes to learn more on the subject. While not required, registration for this workshop is requested. To sign up, call the Alzheimer’s Association hotline at (800) 272-3900.

Both programs are free to attend and open to all. The Huntington Main Library is located at 255 W. Park Drive.
