Community Forums are held to create awareness of health promotion practices about memory preservation for long term lifestyle benefits.  Our topic for this year’s forum is designed to help family members, caregivers and health care professionals obtain information about community resources and unlock answers to the keys that reduce caregiver stress.  After attending the forum participants will be able to identify best practices that lessen the caregiving burden. Attendees will hear from the top researchers, social workers and clinicians on prevention strategies and scientific advances related to conquering caregiver challenges. 

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 impairments. There is no charge for this event however space is limited.  Registration is required and parking is free.

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.
