§  Warning signs & risks

§  The caregiver role

§  Having the talk about driving cessation

 

The panel of speakers include: Susan Howland, Director of Education at the Alzheimer’s Association California Southland Chapter; Jaime Fitten, MD, Professor of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences at UCLA and Director of Geriatric Psychiatry at VA Sepulveda; Tressa Thompson, DMV Senior Ombudsmen Program representative; and Linda Ercoli, Ph.D., Director of Geriatric Psychology at UCLA.
