UNION, NJ - Many of us know just enough about Alzheimer's to be afraid. It affects so many people in so many terrible ways and rumors abound. Keeping informed and understanding the disease, however, can make a tremendous difference. There are things you can do and there are things you need to know.

Get the facts.  A special discussion at Union Public Library will help you learn how and where the brain stores memory, what affects it, and how to improve it through interactive memory exercises. The discussion will be led by Angela Adams, a registered nurse with Atlantic Health Systems, whose expertise includes helping people understand complex medical issues. Her 25-year nursing career includes director of nursing at a women's clinic, a school nurse and a forensic nurse.

The discussion will be held on Monday, June 10 from 6:30 - 7:30 p.m. at the Main Library, 1980 Morris Avenue.  No registration required.  For further information, call 908-851-5450 x2.  All events are free.
