Early Memory Loss Conference Summary – September 2018
The Early Memory Loss Conference on September 29 was a great success! The conference was held in partnership with Mary S. Easton Center for Alzheimer’s Disease Research at UCLA. The day-long program provided support and education for 125 families.
Dr. Mario Mendez from UCLA spoke about research and diagnosis and highlighted some of the work that his team is doing in regard to young onset Alzheimer’s disease. Rebecca Goldfarb, an elder law and estate planning attorney, discussed getting financial and legal documents in order.
Health agencies OPICA and WISE & Healthy Aging also attended, helping provide great local resources and support.
