Experimentation with genetic implants in Alzheimer’s patients may yield a way to stop or slow the loss of healthy brain cells, a medical expert told the the Rancho Santa Fe Library Guild recently.

The guild held an informative presentation about Alzheimer’s disease on Nov. 13 at the Rancho Santa Fe library. Dr. Michael Rafii, director of the Memory Disorders Clinic and assistant professor at UCSD, discussed advances in research.

Rafii’s lecture was the last of three in the Brain Health and Alzheimer’s Series offered by the library guild in partnership with the Alzheimer’s Association. November is designated as National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness month.

Rafii was introduced by Lynn Mullowney, AA associate director, Western region. Susan Appleby, guild membership and development manager, opened up the evening.
