Join Dr. David T. Hutchings, a leading Alzheimer’s expert, to learn the facts about Alzheimer’s and dementia on August 12 at 10a. 

Alzheimer's is not normal aging. It’s a disease of the brain that causes problems with memory, thinking, and behavior. Dr. Hutchings will explain the impact of Alzheimer’s; the difference between Alzheimer’s and dementia; Alzheimer’s disease stages and risk factors; current research and treatments available to address some symptoms; and share valuable resources.

Dr. Hutchings specializes in geriatric neuropathology and dementias. He has a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Mississippi, a Master’s degree from University of Central Missouri, and a doctorate from Nova Southeastern University. He is a nationally recognized lecturer whose clinical practice and research have led to keynote addresses at state and national organizations, as well as Duke University, Vanderbilt University, Northwestern, Auburn University, and many others. Dr. Hutchings has been published in clinical publications and peer reviewed journals. In 2013 he developed clinical education articles on ALS for CNN and in 2019 was featured for a month on News Channel 5 discussing Alzheimer’s and dementia. He is the founder of Dementia and Alzheimer’s Care, PLLC, a private firm focused on the evaluation, treatment and clinical education of all forms of dementia.

In 2021, Dr. Hutchings was named Columbia, TN’s Business Person of the Year for his contributions to the community and healthcare during the COVID-19 pandemic. Dr. Hutchings also serves as a faculty member at John Patrick University in the department of Dementia/Alzheimer’s Medical program as well as co-chair for the university’s Cognitive and Memory Disorders Clinic.
