We are excited to bring back our WEDNESDAY FIRESIDE CHAT series.

We have plans for five special evenings this year. On November 20 join Dr. Michael King for a talk on “The Normal Aging Brain

Join us for a “chat” with Dr. Michael King.

Your Memory: An Owner’s Manual

In this talk, Dr. King will take the audience on a tour of how memory actually works and the various ways in which it can fail, and why. We’ll talk about things that you can do to keep your memory as healthy as possible and how to tell if forgetfulness is something normal and nothing-to-worry-about or whether it might be a sign of something more serious happening that might need attention. There will be lots of time for discussion and question-and-answer after the presentation.

In the interest of full disclosure, Dr. King admits that he sometimes forgets where he parked his car in a parking lot and sometimes tells the same story a couple of times. He frequently hears: “You already told me that” from his wife.

Michael King is a Clinical Neuropsychologist. Clinical Neuropsychology is the special area of Psychology that focuses on how brain injuries and diseases may affect how we think, feel, and act. He completed his Psychology studies at McGill University and has worked at University Hospital in Edmonton and at Calgary General and Foothills Hospital in Calgary.
