2014 Education and Research Conference
The 2014 Education and Research Conference: New Directions in Research and Care took place on Friday, April 25 at The Palace at Somerset Park. It was one of our largest and most exciting conferences to date!
Healthcare professionals heard from such nationally acclaimed speakers as: Richard P. Mayeux, MD, MS, Columbia University Medical Center; Laurel M. Coleman, MD, FACP, National Alzheimer’s Project Act Advisory Council and Darby Morhardt, PhD, LCSW, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. Their presentations, together with presentations in a variety of afternoon workshops, challenged healthcare professionals to think differently about Alzheimer’s research, care and support and the impact of Alzheimer’s on families and our nation’s healthcare system.
The Physicians Pre-Conference Intensive took place on the evening of Thursday, April 24. Dr. Mayeux and Dr. Coleman each gave presentations on the latest in research and treatment focused exclusively for physicians. In addition, the group of local physicians had the opportunity to share and discuss specific issues related to the presentations.
