This day-long symposium will feature experts in the Alzheimer’s and dementia field, coming together for one reason: to provide the best education for professionals and family caregivers of those living with Alzheimer’s disease or related dementia.

The Keynote Speaker, Dr. Richard Isaacson, is the Director of Neurology Residency Training Program and Director of the Alzheimer’s Prevention Clinic, Weill Cornell Memory Disorders Program at Weill Cornell Medical College/NY Presbyterian Hospital. He completed his residency in Neurology at Beth Israel/Harvard Medical School.  Dr. Isaacson specializes exclusively in Alzheimer’s disease risk reduction and treatment, as well as assessment of dietary interventions for Alzheimer’s disease management. His passion comes from a family history of Alzheimer’s disease.
