Nonprofit hosts author, geriatric doctor

La Plata, MD.-- On the evening of Sept. 10, Sagepoint presented Peter Rabins, MD, who discussed his book "The 36 Hour Day." Rabins also discussed the history of Alzheimer's, Dementia and memory loss. 

Sagepoint President/CEO Bill Holman, and the organization's marketing coordinator, Kelsey Pearson, were in attendance at the event. 

"We are grateful to have Dr. Rabins share his knowledge and expertise on Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia that impact so many in the Southern Maryland community", said Holman.

Pearson was very excited to see all the members of the community coming out in support of Sagepoint's second education series event. "As a nonprofit we are definitely trying to help people of our community. This event is free to the community," said Pearson. 

Dr.Rabins is a professor and the founding Director of the Division of Geriatric Psychiatry at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. He is currently focusing on studying the psychiatric disorders in the elderly. 

"There are three revolutions to Alzheimer's, and people get confused about the differences between Dementia and Alzheimer's. Dementia is a general, like a umbrella term. It refers to any disease that starts in adulthood, effects two or more aspects of thinking,and does not affect how alert a person is," said Rabins.
