Emily Paolillo: What is MCI and How Is It Diagnosed?

October 13, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm PDT

Free

Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) is associated with early stages of neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and other dementias. Many people living with dementia cite symptoms of MCI as an early sign. Yet, there’s lots of confusion with what might be “normal” memory loss that comes with aging or a sign to see a doctor. 

UCSF’s Emily Paolillo, PhD, joins Being Patient Live Talks on Friday, October 13th at 12:00 p.m. PT/3:00 p.m. ET to explain MCI and what goes into diagnosis. As an Assistant Professor at the UCSF Memory and Aging Center, her clinical work includes providing neuropsychological evaluations to aid in diagnosis and treatment of patients with possible neurodegenerative diseases. In addition, her research focuses on evaluating digital health tools for early detection and monitoring of neurobehavioral changes in Alzheimer’s disease, as well as understanding how lifestyle behaviors can grant risk and resilience to dementia.

RSVP to this live talk to learn more about MCI and what to keep in mind about diagnosis.
