Alzheimer’s Conferene for Professionals

Professionals may have an interest in the NIH’s “Preventing Alzheimer‰Ûªs Disease and Cognitive Decline” conference, April 26-28, 2010 in Bethesda, MD. The purpose of the conference is to evaluate the available scientific information on Alzheimer‰Ûªs disease.

Discussion topics include:

What factors are associated with the reduction of risk of Alzheimer‰Ûª s disease?

What are the relationships between the factors that affect Alzheimer ‰Ûªs disease and the factors that affect cognitive decline?

What are the therapeutic and adverse effects of interventions to delay the onset of Alzheimer‰Ûªs disease?

At the conference, invited experts will present information pertinent to these questions, and a systematic literature review prepared under contract with the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) will be summarized. Conference attendees will have ample time to ask questions and provide statements during open discussion periods.
