You are invited to our 30th iGeriCare Live Event with Dr. Richard Sztramko and Dr. Anthony Levinson, where we will meet online to discuss alcohol-related cognitive changes.

Excessive alcohol consumption over a lengthy time period can lead to brain damage and may increase your risk of developing dementia. Alcohol-related dementia, as the name suggests, is a form of dementia related to the excessive drinking of alcohol. This affects memory, learning, and other mental functions. Korsakoff’s syndrome and Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome are particular forms of alcohol-related brain injury that may be related to alcohol-related dementia.

The first 15 minutes will be set aside for this discussion and will be followed by a Q&A period.
