Thursday, October 24
5:30 - 6:00 p.m. Registration / Dinner
6:00 - 7:00 p.m. Presentation / Q & A

Presenter, Dr. Elizabeth Vassey, PsyD, is Assistant Professor of Neurology at the Boston University School of Medicine and Investigator at the BU Alzheimer’s Disease Center. She is also a founder and Associate Director of the Boston Center for Memory, a multi-specialty diagnostic and treatment center for patients with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias.

Recent developments allow us to detect the pathology of Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) and Alzheimer’s disease (AD) before there are any symptoms. We are now looking at several different approaches to treating the pathology with vaccines aimed at amyloid and tangles, devices aimed at removing pathology and treating symptoms, and other novel approaches targeting a specific pathogen found in the brain. This presentation will focus on what you can do in the present and for the future in MCI and AD prevention, early detection, and treatment. Free and open to the public. Please RSVP by Tuesday, October 22.

To RSVP, call 781-872-1907 or fill out the form provided.
