2022 Update on Alzheimer's Disease lecture
The 2022 Update on Alzheimer’s Disease lecture will be held Dec. 13 as a virtual presentation given by researchers at the Alzheimer’s Disease and Memory Disorders Center (ADMDC) at Baylor Medicine, the multidisciplinary adult clinical practice of Baylor College of Medicine.
The annual event is co-hosted by Baylor and the Alzheimer’s Association® Houston & Southeast Texas Chapter. It is free and open to the public.
This year, Dr. Melissa Yu, professor and director of the ADMDC at Baylor, will discuss the basics of Alzheimer’s disease, including symptoms, diagnosis and current treatments. She will also present new research that could lead to promising new treatments.
Alzheimer’s and dementia currently affect an estimated 6 million Americans and is the 6th leading cause of death among Americans. Dementia hits close to home, too; an estimated 400,000 Texans are currently living with dementia or Alzheimer’s.
“At the Alzheimer’s Association, we envision a world without Alzheimer’s,” says Richard Elbein, CEO of the Alzheimer’s Association-Houston & Southeast Texas Chapter. Until we achieve that goal, we will continue to support research and dementia care. We are thrilled to partner once again with Baylor College of Medicine and their physician leaders, who will educate Houstonians about the landscape of dementia research and care.”
The presentation begins at 2 p.m. To register, click here bit.ly/ALZUPDATE2022.
