This event is Oregon’s leading research and education event highlighting Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias and honors Dr. Dean McGinty, a Portland geriatrician and an early advocate for those living with dementia and a pioneer in the Alzheimer’s family-support movement.

Since Dr. McGinty’s death in 1995, the Alzheimer’s Association Oregon Chapter has convened experts at the McGinty Conference to lead interactive sessions that focus on the many issues related to Alzheimer’s.

The McGinty Conference is geared toward individuals personally and/or professionally affected by this devastating disease.


Registration for the 25th Annual McGinty Conference: A Silver Lining is now closed. Registration for the next McGinty Conference will be made available in the Fall of 2024.
