Jun 18, 2021 | aging, books, culture, Health, politics, seniors, technology

Welcome to The Not Old Better Show. I’m Paul Vogelzang, and as part of our Smithsonian Associates healthcare innovation interview series, we have an excellent interview with Dr. Barry Gordon, founder of the Memory Clinic at Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, and Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. Dr. Gordon will be presenting at the Smithsonian Associates program, June 22, and the title of his presentation is Making The Most of Your Memory. More details are available on our website.

Are you worried about your memory or someone else’s? Do you want to understand more about how your memory works? How you might help it work better, and stave off declines? Dr. Barry Gordon, a nationally recognized expert on memory and memory disorders, explains how each of us has many different kinds of memories, our own individual patterns of strengths and weakness, and how we might better appreciate what these patterns are.

Dr. Barry Gordon tells us what memory and mental skills are likely to get worse with aging, which are incorrectly blamed on aging, and which may actually improve as we get older. Dr. Gordon describes useful memory and mental skills we should try harder to keep sharp, and Dr. Gordon suggests interventions and lifestyle changes that are most likely to help us to improve our ability to pay attention, to think, and to remember at any age.

Please join me in welcoming to The Not Old Better Show, via internet phone, Smithsonian Associate, Dr. Barry Gordon.
