Lost in the Fog: Understanding Chemo Brain


House Calls Speaker: Tracy Vannorsdall, Ph.D., ABPP
Date: Wednesday, April 3rd, 7:00 - 8:30 PM
During and after cancer treatment, many patients experience a mental fog commonly known as "chemo brain." This phenomenon can significantly impact a patient's quality of life by interfering with memory, recall, concentration and problem solving. Please join Tracy Vannorsdall, PhD., ABPP, Assistant Professor at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, for a discussion about this frustrating and often debilitating phenomenon. She will discuss triggers and possible causes of chemo brain, how to recognize symptoms, and will offer tips and strategies for managing and coping with these side effects. She will also talk about ongoing research in this area. RSVP.
