Dr. Richard Holub, MD.
Learn from the president of Neurological Associates of Albany, how to keep your brain healthy as you age.
Screening are available by 2 staff prior to Dr. Holub’s presentation. Sign-up at Library
Dr. Holub’s presentation will cover Alzheimer’s disease and brain health within the context of healthy aging. There are definite lifestyle behaviors in which all people may engage in order to improve both their physical and mental well-being as they age. These choices may also be beneficial to those already afflicted with Alzheimer’s disease in that they may potentially slow the progression of the disease.
Dr. Richard Holub is a graduate of Rutgers University where he obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Biology. He received his Doctor of Medicine Degree from Georgetown University and subsequently moved to the Capital Region, where he did further training in internal medicine and neurology. He is a Diplomat of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, and a member of the American Academy of Neurology. He has served on the boards of the Alzheimer’s Association and the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation, and he has been a member of the professional advisory committees for both groups.
Dr. Holub has been engaged in Alzheimer’s disease research for over 30 years and has contributed to the development of all five drugs, approved by the FDA, for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease as well as the first Alzheimer’s disease amyloid imaging agent, Florbetapir.
Dr. Holub’s practice is now focused on treating Alzheimer’s disease and related memory disorders; he continues to be actively engaged in cutting edge research to pursue medication treatments for Alzheimer’s disease. He lectures widely in the Capital Region to community groups.
Complimentary memory screenings will be available from 4:30 to 5:30 prior to Dr. Holub’s presentation. The screenings will be conducted by professional staff members from Dr. Holub’s office. The length of time for each screening varies with the individual being screened, but is usually about 10-15 minutes If more people want screenings than can be accommodated in the hour time frame prior to the talk, we will be happy to offer office appointments for complimentary screenings which can be arranged to suit the individual’s schedule.
