25th Annual Alzheimer Day

About Alzheimer Day

Northwestern Alzheimer Day was established to showcase Alzheimer’s research conducted throughout Northwestern and to bring this information to the community. The day features a lecture by an outstanding investigator in the field of neurocognitive studies, followed by 45 to 50 poster presentations by Northwestern clinicians and scientists. Lunch provides an opportunity for scientists and interested members of the community to exchange scientific information and research. An afternoon session including a panel presentation invites audience participation for questions about new treatments and state-of-the-art care. Attendees will also have the opportunity to visit resource tables throughout the day to learn more about community-based resources for individuals living with dementia and their family members.
