Italy Web Banner

Have you ever forgotten where you put your keys? Lost your train of thought mid-conversation? For many of us, these common occurrences are often chalked up to “getting old.” For some, however, memory loss can be an indicator of a more serious issue: a neurological disorder, currently affecting up to one billion people worldwide, according to the World Health Organization. (That’s one in seven people!) The nervous system can be a complex thing to navigate. Let’s start with the basics.

On Tuesday, January 14th, Chef Tracy will teach a cooking class focusing around a Italian cuisine. Then, while you enjoy the delicious final product, our UI Women's Health clinical expert will guide you on the right path to understanding neurological diseases.
