Join the Fight

A conference for Alzheimer's Caregiver's and Healthcare Professionals
Coming to terms with the diagnosis requires time. Immediate reactions of denial and fear are normal and may help you and the person diagnosed process the grief you are feeling.
This conference will bring together the major research groups across the state’s public and private institutions, to share ideas, resources, and opportunities. Community-based caregivers will learn about exciting research advances and clinical trials that their patients might benefit from, and they will be provided with timely updates on state-of-the-art advances in the field.
Currently, more than 23,000 Rhode Islanders are living with Alzheimer’s disease, and over 53,000 family and friends are providing care.
Serving all of Rhode Island, the Alzheimer’s Association Rhode Island Chapter is here to help. We provide education and support to all those facing Alzheimer’s and other dementias throughout our community, including those living with the disease, caregivers, health care professionals and families. We are also committed to advocating for the needs and rights of those facing Alzheimer’s disease and advancing critical research toward methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure.
