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 21st Annual Alzheimer Day.
