Dr. Rodriguez Alzate will discuss diagnosis and treatment for patients with dementia and Alzheimer's and how their caregivers can ensure the best path of care for them.
"We need people to understand that memory problems aren't necessarily just a part of getting older and to make sure a physician evaluates for a potential medical reason," Dr. Rodriguez Alzate said. "It's important that people at risk for dementia understand the disease and can start having serious conversations with their loved ones about future wishes."
Dr. Rodriguez Alzate is board certified in psychiatry and specializes in geriatric psychiatry.
The lecture will be held at noon in Gottlieb's Professional Office Building, 675 W. North Ave., Melrose Park, rooms E, F, G on the lower level.
A boxed lunch will be provided on a first come, first served basis.
This is the latest installment of Gottlieb’s Hai Solomon Community Lecture Series. Dr. Solomon was a Gottlieb physician for 55 years.
