Peter Baker, LMSW, of the Alzheimer’s Association Maine Chapter, will offer a behind-the-scenes look at the fight against Alzheimer’s Wednesday, Nov. 30, from 3 to 4 p.m., at the Anderson Inn at Quarry Hill. “The Science of Hope,” is part of Quarry Hill’s Going Strong series on health topics of particular interest to adults age 50-plus and will be presented free of charge.

Baker’s remarks will center on current theories as to how Alzheimer’s disease develops and reveal how studies are funded and how clinical trials of new medications are organized and carried out. Baker will also explain how to recognize and cut through the media hype that often obscures scientific findings.

Advance registration for the program is required; to sign up, call Quarry Hill at 921-6116 or email
