About Northwestern 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 researcher in the field of neurocognitive studies, followed by 45-50 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. A panel presentation and town hall meeting invite audience participation for questions about new treatments and state-of-the-art care.

The CNADC would like to thank the Mendelson Family for their generous support of our annual Alzheimer Day.

We appreciate the support of our Gold Sponsor, Silverado Senior Living, and our Silver Sponsor, Harbor House Memory Care.
