Some comments from previous participants...
"The info presented is so valuable & helpful."
One thing I really liked about this program was "how everybody was interactive and asked a lot of questions. Speaker was very knowledge[able] about the subject."
"This program clears up a lot of confusion. [I] have MCI – thought it was advanced Alzheimer’s."
“I will take better care of myself as well as my husband.”
