Is Depression in Older Adults a Normal Part of Getting Older?
Robert Bota, MD
Associate Clinical Professor, UCI Health Department of Psychiatry & Human Behavior
Depression is common in older adults, but is it normal? Dr. Robert Bota will share why many physical illnesses can significantly increase the risk of depression, and how implementing stress reduction techniques can improve the quality of life in older adults. He will also discuss Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, or TMS—a new approach to treating depression. Bota is passionate about combining the latest medical treatments with innovative clinical trials. Since 2017, Bota has been named a Physician of Excellence by the Orange County Medical Association.
