Alzheimer’s disease is believed to be influenced by lifestyle habits, other medical conditions, and genetics.

Dr. Ryan Fortna and Dr. Marci Hardy will be discussing the role that genetics plays in your brain health and Alzheimer’s disease risk, including a discussion of ApoE and other genes. They will share how lifestyle and environment contribute to how your genes are expressed and disease is developed or delayed.
