We are all aware of the cognitive and motor changes that are part of the normal aging process, but when should we worry that perceived changes are harbingers of a more serious and perhaps precipitous decline. This presentation will focus on the cognitive changes associated with normal and abnormal aging.
The McGill University Department of Family Medicine and the St. James Literary Society are pleased to present the Dr. Hirsh Rosenfeld Annual Distinguished Lecture in Family Medicine.
Sr. Monique Bourget, the Medical Director of Santa Marcelina Hospital in Brazil, will explore her journey from her medical training at McGill University to her work in San Paulo, where she developed community-based family health programs. She will share her experiences in family medicine, how she fit that in with her calling and the work she is currently doing. This public lecture will allow Sr. Monique to convey her dedication and passion providing inspiration and hope for patients and families here in Montreal.
Refreshments will be served.
Of interest to the general public as well as to health-care professionals, this Distinguished Lecture Series in Family Medicine was inaugurated in 1990 and was made possible by an endowment by the late Dr. Hirsh Rosenfeld, a Montreal family physician. He was a staunch supporter of a number of educational activities and this lecture series is another example of his generosity.
