He will discuss the importance of controlling high blood pressure and other vascular risk factors in prevention of dementia, and new treatments that he and others are developing to slow the onset of cognitive decline.

He is the former chair of the Neurology Department and is currently the Director of the UNM Center for Memory and Aging, which is the only center dedicated to diagnosing, treating and doing research that will impact the growing population, estimated to be over 43,000, of people in New Mexico who have some form of dementia.
