7th Annual Conference

Keynote: Daniel C. Potts, MD, FAAN

          Respected neurologist Dr. Daniel C. Potts champions life-affirming care for those living with dementia. He is the co-author of A Pocket Guide for the Alzheimer’s Caregiver and is listed as one of Maria Shriver’s Architects of Change. On staff at Tuscaloosa VA Medical Center, Potts is also the founder and president of Cognitive Dynamics Foundation and the Medical Director for Dementia Dynamics. Through these two institutions, Potts channels inspiration and hope gained through caring for his father, Lester, who became an acclaimed watercolor artist in the throes of Alzheimer’s disease. Potts has told his father’s story of triumph, hope and creativity internationally.

Also featured: Former Wisconsin Governor Martin J. Schreiber

        Martin J. Schreiber is an award-winning crusader for Alzheimer’s caregivers and people living
with dementia. Reaching audiences nationwide at live events and via media, he uses humor and
compassion to share lessons from his ongoing, decade-plus journey as a caregiver. My Two
Elaines: Learning, Coping, and Surviving as an Alzheimer’s Caregiver, is Schreiber’s first book.
A revised second print edition, as well as as an e-book and audio book are scheduled for spring
2018 releases. Prior to writing My Two Elaines – and while he still cared for his wife at home –
Schreiber helped the Alzheimer’s Association launch Operation: Stronger Together.
