Guest Speakers: Quinn Kennedy, PhD, Director of Aging Research, neuroFit and Peter W. Johnson, Jr., Founder & Principal, PW Johnson Wealth & Legacy, LLC

Financial autonomy, having control over your financial decision and behaviors, is something that many of us take for granted.  However, cognitive decline and impairment can reduce or even lead to the loss of our financial autonomy.  In this webinar, we will provide a primer on cognitive function and how it impacts financial autonomy, and how you can be both protective and proactive about preserving your and your clients’ financial autonomy.
