I am writing you to tell you how much I enjoyed your presentation at Arden Courts. I am very pleased that you spoke not only about Alzheimer’s disease but of other forms of dementia as well, since we now understand that there are other diseases and causations that may leave the patients in need of a caregiver. You spoke in a straightforward manner telling everyone they are adults and should know right from wrong (no smoking, etc.). I think if we all understand what is good for us, we will live longer and healthier lives.

Dear Dr. Bernstein – What a pleasure it was to have you as our speaker at our “Healthy Potluck Meet-Up” in February. Our group of over 80 people thoroughly enjoyed your presentation on healthy aging and your explanation of The Power of 5. As a medical doctor with many years of experience, your expertise on this topic was very valuable. We encourage anyone who is looking for a presenter in the medical field who takes a whole person approach to health to have Dr. Bernstein come and talk to their group. You just may learn something valuable!
