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
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
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
