20th Annual Conference on Alzheimer's Disease and Other Dementias
August 21-23, 2019
Celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2019, the goal of the Annual Conference on Alzheimer’s Disease and Other Dementias is to inform, educate, and train individuals in Mississippi and surrounding states who are caring for persons with Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia. This year’s conference, themed “Don’t Stop Believing: A Journey Through the Continuum of Care,” will focus on helpful strategies to prepare individuals and families to successfully navigate the caregiving journey.
Conference topics will help families and professional caregivers improve health care delivery for patients with Alzheimer's and dementia in various care settings at every phase of the disease progression. From promoting healthy aging to palliative care considerations, presentations in both the general and breakout session formats will provide practical solutions for care delivery and caregiver support. The conference will conclude on Friday with a humorous and inspirational presentation by Jill Connor Browne, founder of The Sweet Potato Queens, followed by an optional photo opportunity and book signing.
