Palm Beach, Fl — Lydian Bank & Trust hosted nearly 50 guests at their Palm Beach headquarters to honor this year’s host committee members of Johns Hopkins Medicine’s annual A Woman’s Journey. Constantine Lyketsos, M.D., M.H.S., the Elizabeth Plank Althouse Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, vice chair of psychiatry for Johns Hopkins Medicine and director of the Johns Hopkins Memory and Alzheimer’s Treatment Center provided guests with a taste of the upcoming health conference with his presentation, “Memory Loss with aging: what can you do? 
The 2011 A Woman’s Journey will take place January 20 at the Palm Beach County Convention Center in West Palm Beach.
Lydian has been a corporate sponsor of A Woman’s Journey since it came to Florida four years ago.  The Johns Hopkins Hospital, the nation’s top-ranked hospital, selected Palm Beach as the first community outside of Baltimore to host this special conference.  Attendees will enjoy a Johns Hopkins heart-healthy breakfast, two seminars of their choosing, lunch with members of the Hopkins faculty and two keynote addresses.  Dr. Lyketsos and other Hopkins doctors will present 10 hour-long seminars covering important health issues facing women. 
“Women, as the gatekeepers for family health, have long been credited with keeping up on the latest breakthroughs on the medical frontier,” stated James B. Meany, Lydian Bank & Trust’s President and Chairman of the Johns Hopkins Regional Advisory Board of Governors for Palm Beach.  “This conference provides a plethora of information on myriad subjects pertaining to everyone in the family — from pediatrics to geriatrics.”
Among the guests joining Mr. Meany and Dr. Lyketsos for the event were Susan Keenan, Betsy Meany, Norma Tiefel, Susan Telesco, Lee Callahan, Trisha Keitel, Dorothy and Sydney Kohl, Mark and Mary Freitas, Paulette and Richard Koch, Pat and Richard Johnson, Cathy and Jack Flagg III,  Lori Gendelman, Barbara Nielsen, Rosemary and Edward Bronstien.
According to Dr. Lyketsos, Alzheimer's disease is expected to reach epic proportions as nearly 15 million U.S. baby boomers age over the next 40 years—115 million worldwide. Minor changes in memory accompany normal aging and many worry about distinguishing between “senior moments” and the onset of serious dementias such as Alzheimer’s disease.  Dr. Lyketsos offered guests tips on how to define their own “senior moments” and how to preserve their memories, as well as the biological and anatomical elements involved in minor memory loss and Alzheimer’s.
Johns Hopkins Medicine’s A Woman’s Journey is a one-day annual event that provides the latest findings on women’s health and information on recent advances in preventing, detecting and treating disease in women. The conference was the creation of two women from Baltimore, Md., Harriet Legum and Mollye Block, who together realized the need to provide women with a forum to gain knowledge about their health concerns.  Last year’s event in Palm Beach attracted more than 350 attendees. 
Keynote speaker for the January event is Lillie D. Shockney, R.N., B.S., M.A.S., nurse and noted humorist, author and administrative director of the Johns Hopkins Avon Foundation Breast Center, who will share her personal story as a breast cancer survivor. At lunch, investigative reporter Jayne Miller, of the NBC Baltimore affiliate WBAL-TV will give a special presentation titled “The Ultimate News Story.“ In it, Miller will describe her recovery from a subdural hematoma and how an unexpected and traumatic moment altered her perspective on life.
In addition to Lydian Bank & Trust, A Woman’s Journey Palm Beach is sponsored by Patrick M. Park and Gunster.
Lydian Bank & Trust provides private banking, wealth advisory and fiduciary services to high-net-worth individuals through a team of financial professionals committed to extraordinary service.  Headquartered at 180 Royal Palm Way in Palm Beach, Lydian has regional offices in Coral Gables, North Palm Beach, Tampa Bay, Naples and Sarasota.  For more information, contact the Lydian Bank & Trust office at 180 Royal Palm Way by telephone at 561-514-4900 or visit
