UC Davis Alzheimer's Disease Center Director Charles DeCarli will discuss "Your aging genes: What you need to know about your risk for dementia" during the Community Discovery Lecture Series on Thursday, May 8 from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the UC Davis MIND Institute, 2825 50th St., Sacramento.
 
Genetic causes and genetic risk of brain aging can be complicated. DeCarli's presentation will introduce the audience to some simple genetic concepts and how they might help understand how genetic risk for Alzheimer's disease is determined.
 
DeCarli holds the Victor and Genvieve Orsi Chair in Alzheimer's Research. He is a behavioral neurologist whose research is focused on using advanced brain imaging to study dementia and the role of genetics, cerebrovascular and Alzheimer's diseases on the aging brain.
 
The Community Lecture Series is supported by Eskaton, Norwood Pines Alzheimer's Care Center, Sunrise Senior Living and Primrose.
 
The event is free and open to the public. For further information or to RSVP, please contact Jayne LaGrande, 916-734-5728, or visit the the UC Davis Alzheimer's Disease Center on Facebook.
