Words of Strength
Fully committed to my patients
To reduce the scale and impact of dementia, Arnoldo believes we need to develop successful intervention programs and economically feasible strategies to effectively modify dementia risk factors that can work in developed and developing countries.
Arnoldo is working to establish the first memory clinic in his region to successfully promote dementia awareness, early diagnosis, and treatment, as well as clinical research in collaboration with colleagues from Mexico and other countries.
As an Atlantic Fellow, Arnoldo enhanced his clinical skills in cognitive and behavioral neurology, allowing me to provide better medical attention to my community.
Mexico's west coast lacks a referral center to properly evaluate and provide comprehensive care to people living with dementia. Arnolodo's goal is to help start a memory clinic within a university-affiliated hospital to provide care for this vulnerable population.
