Highlights from the 1st Annual Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Disorders Forum

Screen Shot 2015-01-07 at 2.36.43 PMThe first Annual Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Disorders Forum was held last year on September 24, 2014 following Governor Corbett’s acceptance of the Pennsylvania State Plan for Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Disorders. Over 150 participants, including government officials, Alzheimer’s Association chapters, other advocacy groups, and leading academic researchers, joined together in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania for the event.

The forum, which consisted of a keynote lecture by this year’s speaker, Dr. Randi Chapman, Director of State Affairs for the National Alzheimer’s Association, and several other breakout sessions, was built as a way to not only evaluate the progress of the State Plan and to discuss the next steps, but also to enhance partnerships and community support surrounding it.
