Webinar: A Conversation with Dr. Reyes: Dementia and Traumatic Brain Injury
Patricio F. Reyes, M.D. is Chief of Neurology and Director of Traumatic Brain Injury and Alzheimer’s Disease & Cognitive Disorders at the Carl. T. Hayden VA Medical Center in Phoenix. On the heels of the NFL Superbowl, we are offering a webinar conversation with Dr. Patricio F. Reyes, M.D. with special guests, pro football hall of famer, Carl Eller, and his wife, Molly Heisenfelt Eller, along with other NFL wives. The wives will discuss their roles as caregivers for their husbands, afflicted with cognitive issues, likely stemming from their hard-hitting football heydays. The doctor will tackle dementia, traumatic brain injury (TBI), and concussions, head on. His longstanding participation with the Retired NFL Players Association, and the Association of Ringside Physicians, has exposed him to dangers of contact sports. Additionally, in his 30 years of practice, he has acquired acclaimed expertise in dementia, as well as non-sports-related causes of TBI. An ardent supporter of family caregivers, Dr. Reyes will address:
• The connection between TBI and dementia
• Effective prescription medicines for TBI and dementia
• Caregiving tips for tending to a loved one with TBI or dementia
• Self-care reminders for the family caregiver
