with Dr. Richard Hammond
Have you ever had trouble remembering people’s names? Do you ever come out of the grocery store and not remember where your car is? Have you ever missed an appointment? If you, or a loved one, have experienced any of these types of situations, this presentation is for you.
On March 6, neurologist Dr. Richard Hammond of St. Luke’s Magic Valley Medical Center in Twin Falls will discuss the importance of our executive function skills in living a productive life, in particular how our memory serves us and how we can keep our memory healthy for an enhanced quality of life.
Following Dr. Hammond 30-minute talk, attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions and explore topics related to brain health, such as caring for our brains through nutrition, sleep, and exercise.
The Miracle of the Mind programs at The Community Library are presented in partnership with Anita Dromey, Speech-Language Pathologist at St. Luke’s Rehabilitation in Ketchum.
