Thank You Breakfast Brings Hope to Families Participating in Penn Memory Center Research

The 6th Annual Penn Memory Center Thank You Breakfast drew a packed crowd to the Inn at Penn’s Woodlands Ballroom on October 20, 2012. The annual invitation-only breakfast thanks research participants for their contribution to Penn’s Alzheimer’s disease research.

Your research is wonderful and your sharing it like this is unbelievably generous and much appreciated.

Over 200 research participants along with their family members and guests enjoyed breakfast before attending presentations on the latest updates in Alzheimer’s disease and the results of Alzheimer’s disease research done at the Penn Memory Center.

I find this program great. It gives me some hope, and learning about the disease is very informative. Thank you for all you do.

Members of the Penn Alzheimer’s Disease team – including Penn ADCC director John Trojanowski, MD, PhD, Penn Memory Center director Steven E. Arnold, MD, Penn Memory Center clinicians David Wolk, MD, and Jason Karlawish, MD, and Felicia Greenfield, LCSW, Penn Memory Center Associate Director for Clinical and Research Operations – each presented the latest results from research studies as well as updates on Penn Memory Center programs and upcoming research opportunities.

The presentations concluded with an open question and answer session. Guests’ questions ranged from how biomarker results are used in clinical practice to the current and future state of Alzheimer’s disease research.

This is a much appreciated event in recognition of the efforts of those of us who want to help.
