The Alzheimer's Association Spring Symposium is the largest regional education event focused on Alzheimer care, treatment and research offered by the North Central Texas Chapter. The event, attended by hundreds of family caregivers and health care professionals each year, will be celebrating its 13th year of offering quality dementia education. The Annual Spring Symposium is expanding to the Arlington Convention Center and adding sessions especially for physicians and researchers.

The highlight of the 2016 Symposium will be the keynote presentation by renowned researcher and physician Dr. Steven DeKosky. As a physician, Dr. DeKosky treats patients who suffer from a variety of neurological disorders including Alzheimer's disease. As one of the first researchers to effectively use brain imaging in the study of Alzheimer's, he continues to be a pioneer. For Dr. DeKosky's full biography, visit the speaker page.
