alzheimer's research:
the global search for hope
a local call to action

These annual research events showcase the latest news from the research front and highlights the progress scientists are making toward finding better treatments, and eventually a cure, for Alzheimer’s. A question and answer session will be held at the conclusion of each presentation.

2014 Special Presenter: Bruno Giordani, Ph.D.
MADC Associate Director | Professor of Psychiatry, Neurology and Psychology
Michigan Alzheimer’s Disease Center

Dr. Giordani will share information attained from attending the 2015 Alzheimer's Association International Conference (AAIC) in Washington, D.C. - the world’s largest forum for the dementia research community.

You'll learn about:

  • The global prevalence of dementia and what will happen if we don't take action now 
  • Which factors increase your risk and what brain imaging can tell us 
  • New, more affordable scans and test and how they work
  • Reducing your risk through lifestyle changes
