2015 Event Wrap-Up
On Friday, April 24, the 2015 Annual Dementia Conference took place at the Sheraton Baltimore North Hotel in Towson. We were honored to have the keynote address presented by Dan Cohen, executive director of Music & Memory whose work was featured in the acclaimed documentary, "Alive Inside." In addition to his thoughtful insights on the impact of music on the lives of those living with dementia and the individuals who care for them, the day was filled with expert information on the disease and best practices for care. The conference closed with Dr. Marilyn Albert's in-depth report on current research and future promises in the field.
