Free Memory Screenings set for May 17 at Hattiesburg Clinic
People age 45 and older are eligible for the screening, which will take place from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at Hattiesburg Clinic Memory Center, located on the sixth floor of the main clinic, at 415 S. 28th Avenue in Hattiesburg. Participants will check in at the front desk. Although the screening is free to participants, registration is required.
While not intended to diagnose any illness or replace consultation with a qualified health care provider, the 20-minute screening may help uncover early signs of memory impairment or dementia. Additionally, participants will receive educational materials and resources.
Screening sessions fill up quickly, and limited space is available. Screenings at Memory Center are held on select dates throughout the year. To register for a screening, contact Memory Center at (601) 268-5620.
