The puzzle that is dementia will kick off “Dinner with the Doctor,” a series of free health talks hosted by the Brooklyn Bridge Rotary Club, this Thursday, Oct. 11, 6 pm, at New York Marriott Brooklyn Bridge, 333 Adams St., Downtown Brooklyn.
“Dementia — What Is It? Who Gets It? What To Do About It,” will be discussed by Brooklyn Heights neurologist Richard Lechtenberg, M.D., a 35 year medical veteran who treats a wide range of patients, age 12 to 85, confronting all types of neurological challenges.
The second talk in the Rotary series will feature cardiologist Ozgen Dogan, M.D., on “Prevention in Heart Disease,” Thursday, Nov. 8. Subsequent lectures will cover breast cancer, erectile dysfunction, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, colon cancer, Parkinson’s disease, hypertension, and weight loss.
All sessions are free and open to the general public, reservations are not required, and light refreshments will be served. Following each talk, guests will have the option of joining the doctor for a $30 prix fixe dinner.
The series will be moderated by Cara Lubin, M.D., a charter member of the Brooklyn Bridge Rotary Club.
