Audio-Digest Foundation announces the release of Psychiatry Volume 42, Issue 06: Epigenetics/Dementia.

The goal of this program is to improve understanding of epigenetics and management of Latino patients with dementia. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:

1. Understand the importance of epigenetic regulation and identify factors that may influence the epigenome.
2. Interpret the clinical significance of various epigenetic mechanisms, eg, methylation, histone acetylation and deacetylation, alterations in microRNA.
3. Cite current evidence regarding epigenetics and child psychiatry.
4. Evaluate the clinical implications of telomere shortening.
5. Identify challenges and overcome barriers to caring for elderly Latinos with dementia.

The original programs were presented by Stacy S. Drury, MD, PhD, Assistant Professor of Psychiatry and Pediatrics, and Director, Behavioral and Neurodevelopmental Genetics Laboratory, Tulane University School of Medicine, New Orleans, LA, and Chris Flores, MD, Assistant Clinical Professor, Department of Family Medicine, Loma Linda University School of Medicine, Loma Linda, CA.
