The Rev. Dr. Cynthia Huling Hummel, of Elmira, N.Y., will be speaking at the Bradford County Library on Monday, Sept. 17 at 7 p.m., on “Living with an Alzheimer’s Diagnosis”. She will also talk about the 10 warning signs of Alzheimer’s disease.
In 2017, Huling Hummel was appointed by the Secretary of Health and Human Services to serve on the National Council for Alzheimer’s Research, Care and Services and represents those living with a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) and other related dementias. She is serving a two-year term on the Council and is one of just six appointees nationwide.
Huling Hummel facilitates a support group for those living with an AD diagnosis. She also helps plan and host local social events for those living with AD, and speaks locally, regionally and nationally about living with Alzheimer’s.
Huling Hummel will also discuss her new book, “UnMasking Alzheimer’s: The Memories Behind the Masks”, which is a collection of photographs of the 30 masks that she created the summer of 2017 that describe what it is like to live with Alzheimer’s.
Jeffrey Dauber of the Greater Pennsylvania Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association will also be on hand to answer any questions related to the programs and services that are available to those living with a diagnosis and their care partners.
This talk is free and open to the public.
The Bradford County Library is located on Route 6, one mile west of the town of Burlington. For additional information on the program or directions to the Library, call the Library at (570) 297-2436.
