Alzheimer’s Association
to hold classes at library
The Alzheimer ’s
Association Oregon Chapter
will hold back-to-back class-
es, “Know the 10 Signs: Early
Detection Matters” and
“Healthy Living for Your
Brain and Body,” from 1 to
2:30 p.m. and 3 to 4:30 p.m.
on Thursday, Jan. 11, in the
Bromley Room of the
Siuslaw Public Library, 1460
Ninth St.
The warning signs of
Alzheimer’s disease are often
dismissed as side effects of
normal aging.
If someone is experiencing
memory loss or behavioral
changes, it’s time to learn the
facts. Early detection pro-
vides a chance to begin drug
therapy, enroll in clinical
studies and plan for the
future.
Attend the first class to
learn the 10 Warning Signs of
Alzheimer’s Disease.
The Alzheimer ’s
Association will separate
myth from reality and address
commonly held fears about
Alzheimer’s in America.
The second class will
review research in the areas
of diet and nutrition, exercise,
cognitive activity and social
engagement and use hands-on
tools to help incorporate these
recommendations into a plan
for healthy aging.
“Know the 10 Signs” and
“Healthy Living” are free, but
registration is required.
To register, call 800-272-
3900.

classes, visit www.alz.org/

SAPPSA warns about
winter alcohol consumption
Siuslaw News editor to
speak at City Club Jan. 5
Siuslaw Area Partnership to
Prevent Substance Abuse
(SAPPSA) reminds everyone
that the holidays are often a
time when alcohol consump-
tion increases and health is
compromised.
Celebrating within pub-
lished guidelines for alcohol
consumption is better for your
own health and the health of
your dearest family and
friends.
The U.S. Surgeon General
advises a maximum of “Two
drinks of alcohol a day for
men and one drink a day for
women.”
For women, heavy alcohol
drinking is defined as having
more than three drinks on any
day or more than seven drinks
per week. For men, heavy
alcohol drinking is defined as
more than four drinks on any
day or more than 14 drinks per
week.
Alcohol is classified as a
carcinogen and a co-carcino-
gen. It can be a direct cause or
a contributory cause of cancer
in the human body.
