LOGAN – A health fair for Northern Utah residents, focused on Alzheimer’s Disease awareness and prevention scheduled for Saturday, June 29, is encouraging residents as well as caregivers to attend.

JoAnn Tschanz, a Utah State University professor of psychology, is joining other USU faculty well-versed in psychology, neuroscience and aging to conduct the fair.

Dr. Tschanz said it is important for people to understand what they can do now to reduce their risk of Alzheimer’s Disease.

She is well-known for her extensive research with the Cache County Study on Memory and Aging. She also serves as coordinator of the Alzheimer’s Prevention Health Fair.

She said Fair attendees may also take part in a one-day research study — “Prevent Alzheimer’s For Life” — to be conducted by a team of USU researchers.

The health fair runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday on the second floor of the USU Taggart Center. Attendees who participate in the research study will receive a $20 honorarium. Free parking is available at the Big Blue Parking Terrace.
