More than 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease, according to a 2016 report from the Alzheimer’s Association. The sixth-leading cause of death in the United States, every year Alzheimer’s claims more lives than breast and prostate cancer combined.
To combat the problem, Augusta University will host its second annual Alzheimer’s Symposium on Saturday, June 25, from 8 a.m.–4 p.m. in the J. Harold Harrison, M.D. Education Commons.
The all-day event, featuring keynote speaker Dr. David S. Geldmacher of the University of Alabama School of Medicine, will focus on current dementia and memory loss research and will offer practical pointers for patients, families and caregivers living with Alzheimer’s.
The Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University designates this live activity for a maximum of 6.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits. Physicians should only claim credit corresponding to their level of participation.
The symposium is also approved for a maximum of 6.25 Continuing Education Credit Hours.
