Dementia and the Caregiver Burden (FREE)

Speaking of Health Lecture Series – July

What are the early signs of dementia?  What are the treatment options?  What are ways to ease the strain and stress of caring for someone with dementia? 

Join Elizabeth Rhee, MD, Geriatrician at The Queen’s Medical Center, to learn more about what dementia is and how it can affect the health of both the patient and caregiver.

According to the Alzheimer’s Association, nearly 60 percent of Alzheimer’s and dementia caregivers rate the emotional stress of caregiving as high or very high; and more than one-third report symptoms of depression.

Learn practical ways to reduce caregiver strain with guest Pamela Scott-Yuen, Oahu Program Coordinator for the Alzheimer's Association.  These include identifying and eliminating personal barriers and changing your response to stress.

Chronic Back Pain: How to Ease the Ache (FREE)

Speaking of Health Lecture Series – Wednesday, August 27

Are you one of the estimated 10 million adults who suffer from chronic back pain annually?  The majority of these have degenerative conditions that can result in instability and spinal nerve compression, causing back pain and radiating pain in the arms or legs.

Find out how you can get relief starting with non-surgical treatments, including lifestyle changes, exercise, medication, physical therapy and steroid injections.

If you’ve tried those options and are still struggling with pain, learn about the latest advancements and treatments in minimally invasive spine surgery.  It is estimated that more than one million patients undergo spine surgery each year in the U.S.  This is your opportunity to talk to the experts from The Queen’s Medical Center and see if it’s right for you.
