BANGOR — Registration is open to attend Northern Light Acadia Hospital’s Healthy Brain Aging Webinar, set for 6 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 5.

The Maine Initiative for Neurologic Aging & Health is a statewide interest group for research in healthy brain aging, memory loss, Alzheimer’s disease, and related cognitive disorders, according to a news release from Alan Comeau with Northern Light Health.

This event brings together members of MAINAH, the community, and leading brain health professionals for information and updates on current work in Maine and the possible role people can play in advancing research.

Topics to be addressed are loneliness, social isolation, and healthy aging, mitochondrial function during aging and disease, and hearing loss as a risk for cognitive impairment. There will also be a quick primer on precision medicine and new treatments for Alzheimer’s disease. A short discussion and Q&A will wrap up the evening.
