The class will cover 10 warning signs of Alzheimer’s, why early detection is important, and how Alzheimer’s is diagnosed. It will also touch briefly on risk factors for Alzheimer’s and related dementias as well as the role of genetics in Alzheimer’s disease.

This session is offered free and is scheduled for 1 – 2 p.m. on March 1 at Iora Primary Care Renton, 64 Rainier Ave S.
