About the Event

CCA October Lunch & Learn | Cognitive Changes with Normal Aging

Ever notice that sometimes things take longer to mentally process than they did when you were much younger? Ever get lost going somewhere that you have been to before? Ever “blank” on someone’s name and worry that you have had more frequent “senior moments” or “brain freezes” as the years pass? Join Dr. George E. Taffet and The Jung Center's Community for Conscious Aging for this Lunch & Learn that kicks off our fall series, Hope in the Hard Conversations about Dementia and Alzheimer's, and explore the ways that the brain changes naturally as we age.

Part of  Hope in the Hard Conversations about Alzheimer's and Dementia A Series brought to you by The Jung Center's Community for Conscious Aging

Jung wrote that “as far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being.”  But what can we do, what consciousness can we bring to light, when the brain and nervous system are directly affected by the symptoms of cognitive illnesses like Alzheimer’s and dementia?  Join us throughout October as we discover that, even in the darkest of situations, there is still hope for self-discovery, meaning-making, and finding sources of joy – for everyone involved.

In practice for 41 years, Dr. George E. Taffet is a Professor at Baylor College of Medicine and currently holds the prestigious Robert J. Luchi, MD, Chair in Geriatric Medicine. Dr. Taffet earned his MD degree from Brown University Program in Medicine, followed by an Internship and Residency in Internal Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine. He later completed a Fellowship in Clinical Geriatrics and a Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Cardiovascular Sciences. Dr. Taffet lectures on aging and oversees clinical opportunities for medical students to learn about older adults in a variety of settings – such as long-term care facilities and hospice. He trains residents at the VA, Baylor, and Methodist hospitals. He is a faculty member in Baylor’s Huffington Center on Aging, the Biology of Aging Graduate Program, and holds memberships in numerous professional organizations related to geriatrics.
