A drive-thru clinic will also be held November 8th - from 8am to 6pm.
Blood pressure and sugar
Some common blood pressure drugs appear to reduce the amount of plaque in the brains of people with alzheimer's.
Researchers autopsied the brains of nearly 900 patients - who had taken blood pressure lowing drugs.
Some patients had alzheimer's disease - some didn't.
Patients taking a type of drug known as a receptor blocker - had fewer brain plaques.
Researchers say the choice of blood-pressure lowering drugs could make a difference in maintaining brain function.
