About Alzheimer Day

Join us for the 30th Annual Alzheimer Day on Friday, May 3, 2024 in the Feinberg Pavilion Conference Center on Northwestern University's Chicago campus. Northwestern Alzheimer Day was established to showcase Alzheimer's related dementia and aging research conducted throughout Northwestern and to bring this information to the community.

Attendees will have the opportunity to connect with community members and researchers over lunch and through the presentation of research posters. 

More information about event registration, abstract submissions, and sponsorship opportunities will be available on this page in early 2024.

2023 Alzheimer Day

On May 11, 2023, we hosted our 29th Annual Alzheimer Day. The keynote Mendelson Lecture was delivered by William Jagust, MD, professor of Neuroscience and of Public Health at the University of California, Berkeley. He shared an overview of current research into the link between the protein tau, amyloid beta peptides in the brain, and the progression of Alzheimer’s Disease.

Following the lecture, community members had the chance to pose questions to a panel of local and Northwestern experts on community-academic partnerships in brain health research during the Quality of Life Symposium. The day concluded with lunch, a vendor fair, and research poster session.
