SOUTHBURY — The Watermark at East Hill will host the John Hopkins School of Medicine’s Peter V. Rabins, M.D., MDH, for a presentation on dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

The event will be from 5 to 7 p.m. on Monday, June 9, at the senior living community, 611 East Hill Rd. Dr. Rabins is a professor of psychiatry at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, specializing in psychiatric disorders occurring later in life.

He has authored more than 280 scientific papers and eight books, including “The 36-Hour Day,” now in its fifth edition.
