Monday, March 18, 2019

The Alzheimer’s Association and The Bridge at Ooltewah are partnering to bring “Coffee With Kodsi,” an educational question-and answer program featuring Chattanooga area Neurologist Dr. Matthew Kodsi. 

This event will afford attendees the opportunity to ask a leading expert in the field of dementia care their most pressing questions. 

“Understanding the disease and how to manage the often-baffling effects is the key to effective management," said Amy French, manager of programs for the local Alzheimer’s Association. “Alzheimer’s is a very challenging disease for both the patient and the caregiver. This is a golden opportunity to ‘ask the expert’ as well as connect with others in the Alzheimer’s community."

“Coffee With Kodsi” will take place on Friday, April 5 at The Bridge at Ooltewah, 5901 Snow Hill Road in Ooltewah. It is free and open to the public.  Light refreshments will be served. RSVP to 423-760-8540.
