The first day, specialists from across the country will focus on “Mild Cognitive Impairment: An Evolving Concept in Research and Clinical Practice.” This scientific program highlights current concepts in the diagnosis, genetics, imaging and therapy associated with mild cognitive impairment, a condition that affects one-fourth of Americans over the age of 65.
The second day’s session is entitled “Mild Cognitive Impairment: Impact on the Patient and Family.” This is the Second Annual Martin Family Alzheimer Disease Symposium and is designed to inform the general public about the Indiana Alzheimer Disease Center and research in the area of mild cognitive impairment, as well as current best practice approaches to diagnosis, management and intervention.
The courses are free but enrollment is limited. Registration, which is required, can be made through the Indiana University School of Medicine Division of Continuing Medical Education. See cme.medicine.iu.edu or call 317-274-8353 for additional information.
