Event Details

Thank you for your interest in the Emory Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center’s Registry for Remembrance Forum. Your support and participation is vital to our continued success during this critical time to help our community make informed decisions regarding their cognitive health and related interventions. 

As a vested partner, we ask you to participate in our 4th Forum scheduled for Tuesday, October 30, 2012 beginning at 9:00 am at the Carter Presidential Center. This event is jointly organized by the Emory Center for Health in Aging and the Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center.

The forum, titled “The ABC's to Brain Health - What to Keep in Mind,” aims to identify some of the challenges and solutions encountered by Atlanta’s boomer generation.  The main focus is to highlight current health promotion practices that empower older adults to increase their self-management behavior.

Forum attendees will receive concrete action steps in the following areas:
 • Aging well to preserve your cognitive health - how to keep it 
 • Brain-Body connections that promote healthy living for disease prevention and modification
 • Cardiovascular links among diabetes, dementia and physical activity

“The ABC's to Brain Health - What to Keep in Mind,” brings together a variety of experts and stakeholders with a special interest in taking a holistic approach to healthy aging. 

This forum is open to the community. Registration is required for this event.  Lite fare provided. Seating is limited. 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.
