Share 8th Brain Health Forum

Event Details

Don’t miss the 8th Brain Health Forum on Tuesday, October 28, 2014 at the Carter Presidential Center.  This forum will bring together more than 300 attendees and exhibitors to draw on the latest trends and discoveries in Alzheimer’s prevention and research.  Despite the increase in emerging treatments and early detection, we still have challenges to overcome to stop, slow or perhaps prevent Alzheimer’s disease.

This event is jointly supported by the Emory Center for Health in Aging and the Fulton Dekalb Hospital Authority. The forum, titled “Movement and Memory: A Prescription for Your Brain’s Healthwill provide participants with information about current progress with early detection and early interventions that affect our older adult community.  Hear from our Emory, VA and Mayo Clinic experts about the best strategies that support memory preservation.  The forum is open to the community and comprised of public health professionals, caregivers, and men and women who want to explore the latest standards of care that implement a multidisciplinary team approach for patients with cognitive decline.   To view slide presentations from the 7th Brain Health forum visit http://eepurl.com/TWkEb. 

 Seating is limited. Parking is free, lunch is provided and CEUs are available.

 Finally, to make this educational event available at no cost to participants we are seeking your support.  To learn how you can help please contact Cornelya Dorbin at 404-712-1416.

The Emory University Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center is the only comprehensive care clinic for Alzheimer’s disease and related memory disorders in Georgia.  We are one of just 27 Alzheimer’s Disease Research Centers (ADRC) in the country as designated by the National Institutes of Health. Everything we do is patient-centered to provide a compassionate and collaborative approach to early diagnosis, treatment and state-of-the-art care.  For more information visit www.alzheimers.emory.edu.

The Atlanta Regional Geriatric Education Center (ARGEC) is a consortium that builds upon the extensive interdisciplinary training framework of Emory, the historic community outreach and disparities reduction programs of Morehouse School of Medicine, the socially-centered programs of Georgia State University, and the community and policy focus of the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC).  For more information visit www.aging.emory.edu.

At the Atlanta VA RR&D Center of Excellence for Visual and Neurocognitive Rehabilitation (CVNR), our goal is to foster the best possible health and well-being of Veterans by conducting cutting-edge research in rehabilitation of visual and neurocognitive problems.  The researchers at the CVNR are committed to this goal and proudly serve as a resource for Veterans, their family members and the community at large. The CVNR is the only VA Rehabilitation Research & Development Center of Excellence in Georgia, and one of only 16 nationwide.  For more information visit www.varrd.emory.edu.
