Dear Colleagues,

The Smoking Cessation Leadership Center(SCLC) is pleased to invite you to our next free webinar, "Smoking and Dementia: Are You at Risk for Alzheimer's?" on June 25, 2014 at 2:00 pm Eastern Time/ 11:00 am Pacific Time (90 minutes).

We are honored to have Eric B. Larson, MD, MPH, MACP, Vice President for Research, Group Health and Executive Director & Senior Investigator, Group Health Research Institute (GHRI), presenting on this topic for us.

Webinar Objectives:

  • Describe how research has changed our understanding of Alzheimer's and late life dementias
  • Value the magnitude of the "epidemic" of Alzheimer's and late life dementias
  • Explain that reduction of vascular risk is a promising way to reduce risk of experiencing Alzheimer's and late life dementia and that these conditions are among the most feared of any chronic disease.
  • Apply the knowledge that smoking increases vascular risk and the risk of developing late life dementias and Alzheimer's disease to promote smoking cessation
  • Assess that evidence of declining incidence rates reported in several recent papers argues for preventability of Alzheimer's and late life dementias
