Neurologic Diseases of Aging the Focus of Seminar in Oxnard on April 21

Oxnard, California, 04/17/2015

Neurologic diseases of aging such as Alzheimer’s and dementia will be the focus of a free seminar Community Memorial Health System is holding on Tuesday, April 21.

Darshan Shah, M.D., who specializes in neurology and neuromuscular disease, will lead the seminar that will run from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Courtyard by Marriott Oxnard, 600 E. Esplanade Drive.

As the population ages, neurologic diseases are becoming more common. Such conditions not only mentally and functionally limit a patient’s independence, they place a significant burden on caregivers, the greater medical community and society at large. Dr. Shah will review the common neurological diseases of aging, common presenting signs and symptoms, and diagnostic work-up and treatment strategies.

Dr. Shah received his medical degree from Ross University Medical School in Portsmouth, Dominica. He completed his internal medicine residency at Illinois Masonic Medical Center and his neurology residency at University of Chicago Hospitals. Dr. Shah is certified by the American Board of Electrodiagnostic Medicine and the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology and is an active member of the Community Memorial Hospital medical staff.

Registration is free but reservations are required. Call 1-800/838-3006 or visit
