Residents with questions about dementia can get them answered next week at the Marshall Public Library. 


Wednesday, October 3 at 7 p.m., the library will host a discussion with Wes Ward, NP-C., called “Dementia: What is New in Treatment and Research.” Ward will focus on new strategies and treatments for improving outcomes and regaining cognitive function, ways to reduce risk factors, and optimizing the brain’s ability to heal itself. A question and answer session will be held at the end. 


“Dementia is more treatable then most people think,” said Ward. “Instead of letting this disease go unchecked, we’ll be talking about the ways patients and those carrying for loved ones can still get as much as possible out of life.”


The discussion is free to the public and will be held on the first floor of the library. 


Ward currently practices at Physicians Immediate Care. He is a graduate of Idaho State University and completed his Master of Science in Nursing as a Family Nurse Practitioner at Clarkson College in Omaha, Nebraska.
