The 2010 Northern Plains Conference on Aging and Disability will kick off with a special presentation by neuroscientist and geriatric psychiatrist Dr. William Orr at 7 p.m. Sept. 28 at Bethany on University, 201 S. University Drive in Fargo.

Orr will present “Memory Loss in the Baby Boomers,” which will provide a general overview of how early memory loss presents differently across generations. He will also discuss differentiating early dementia from depression and the latest on healthy aging and future Alzheimer’s disease treatments.

The event is free and open to the public. Continuing education credits are available.
