Annual Dementia Conferences

The Alzheimer’s Association Delaware Valley Chapter Annual Conferences are the place to be for dementia education, networking and information. These full day events (8:00 am – 4:30 pm), offered in King of Prussia, Central New Jersey and Dover, educate hundreds of family caregivers and healthcare professionals. We strive to provide the best education for those caring for or living with Alzheimer’s disease or a related disorder by recruiting dynamic national, regional and local experts to present. Join us to network with 350-650 attendees and visit with local healthcare vendors to learn about services available in your area.

For questions, call our 24/7 Helpline 800.272.3900
