About Alzheimer Day

On May 5, 2022 we hosted our 28th Annual Alzheimer Day, returning to campus for the first time in three years. The keynote Mendelson Lecture was delivered by Lisa Barnes, PhD, professor of Neurological Sciences at Rush Medical College, who spoke about social and environmental factors that impact cognitive aging in racial and ethnic minority patients.

The day concluded with a celebration of 25th anniversary of the Glen and Wendy Miller Family Buddy Program, which matches first-year medical students with patients diagnosed with early Alzheimer’s disease or related illnesses. 

Abstract Book

As a part of our annual event we featured the latest cognitive aging, dementia and neuroscience research at Northwestern University. 46 posters were selected to present. Learn more about these projects and the speakers at the event.
