Maintaining a healthy brain is important as we age.

In this program at the Livingston Public Library on June 17th at 11 am, Dr. Michelle Papka, the Director and Founder of Cognitive and Research Center of NJ, will discuss what is normal brain aging and the importance of maintaining a healthy brain.

Dr. Papka began her career at the University of Rochester Medical Center as the Neuropsychologist of an NIA-funded Alzheimer’s Disease Center.  She later moved back to New Jersey and co-directed the Cognitive and Memory Disorders Program at Saint Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, NJ.  From there, Dr. Papka formed her private practice, maintaining an affiliation with the Atlantic Neuroscience Institute and Department of Psychiatry at Overlook Medical Center.  Dr. Papka has nearly 25 years combined experience as a researcher and clinician specializing in the field of aging, Alzheimer’s disease, and dementia. She practices as a neuropsychologist, psychotherapist, and researcher, serving as the Principal Investigator on over 20 recent clinical trials for Alzheimer’s disease, memory impairment, or Mild Cognitive Impairment. Dr. Papka has had numerous publications of her work and is an active public speaker, invited editor, grant reviewer, consultant, and a committee member of multiple specialized organizations and publications in the field of aging and Alzheimer’s Disease.

Dr. Papka will discuss different strategies and activities we can implement as we age to ensure optimal brain health.  She will also touch on what to do and what resources and services are available if there is cognitive decline.
