PA sites offered memory screening tests

Media Outlet: 


Tuesday was National Memory Screening day. More than 130 sites around Pennsylvania offered free screenings to increase early detection of memory problems. The screenings can help reassure people who are worried by the kinds of normal forgetfulness that come with age, says Ausim Azizi, chair of neurology at Temple University School of Medicine. "Hopefully if that happens, and people come for memory screening and (it’s) normal, that will alleviate that worry and that concern and that anxiety," Azizi said.
