Alzheimer symposium comes to Denver


Alzheimer's Association of Colorado in partnership with the University of Colorado Denver School of Medicine presents the 22nd Annual Alzheimer's Association Education Symposium "Changing Minds" sponsored by Evercare Oct. 12 at the Marriott Denver Tech Center.

The Alzheimer's Association one day Symposium, "Changing Minds", brings together experts on Alzheimer's disease who will help transform the way we think about this disease. The Symposium offers local and national speakers who have revolutionized our ideas about public policy and advocacy, research and treatment and person-centered care for people with Alzheimer's disease.

More than 600 healthcare professionals, people with dementia and family caregivers will be in attendance and learn how to rise to the challenges brought on by Alzheimer's. More than 40 exhibitors will be on hand offering community resources, books sales and opportunities for early holiday shopping in the fiber arts booth.

The Alzheimer's Association Education Symposium is renowned for bringing together experts on Alzheimer's disease including leading national researchers and healthcare professionals offering the latest in treatment, research and caregiving techniques. This one-day program has been condensed from its previous format to allow staff working at the same care communities to attend.

Opening panelists include Michael Splaine owner and principal of Splaine Consulting. Splaine was Director of State Government Affairs in the Public Policy Division of the Alzheimer's Association. G. Allen Power, M.D. is a certified Eden Alternative® Educator and a member of the Eden Alternative Board of Directors, and Clinical Associate Professor of Medicine at the University of Rochester in New York. Additional panelists will include a couple living with Alzheimer's.

This year's Early Stage Forum for those with dementia will take place at the Marriott Denver Tech Center Oct 12 with registration beginning at 7:30 am, the same time as the Symposium. Holding the Early Stage Forum at the same time offers those with dementia an opportunity to attend the opening and closing sessions but participate with Lisa Snyder, author of "Living Your Best with Early Stage Alzheimer's", in breakout sessions designed in a comfortable, safe setting. This thoughtfully-paced schedule was planned to minimize stress and fatigue for those with dementia. Care partners, family members, spouses or friends accompanying the person with dementia are welcome to attend the Early Stage Forum, however, this special program is specifically designed for those with dementia. For more information about the scholarships offered by Seniors Inc for individuals with dementia or to register for the Early Stage Forum call 303-813-1669 or email

Registration is $120 per person for the Symposium and $60 for those with dementia attending the Early Stage Forum. Organizations sending more than four registrants to the Symposium qualify for a reduced rate of $99 per person and Students are $60.
