The Rhode Island Hospital Alzheimer’s Disease and Memory Disorders Center will present “Countdown to 2025: Progress on Ending Alzheimer’s Disease" on Thursday, December 7, 2017. Learn about the advances that Rhode Island Hospital researchers are making on alzheimer’s disease as well as current clinical trials related to it. This deadly disease affects 25,000 Rhode Islanders.
Brian R. Ott, MD, director of the center, and Lori A. Daiello, PharmD, ScM, will speak about new developments in the treatment of this brain disorder which slowly destroys a person’s memory and ability to learn, reason, communicate and perform daily activities.
A reception with light refreshments in the atrium will be followed by the lecture and a question-and-answer period.
The free program will be open to the public and of special interest to patients, their family and friends, potential volunteers for the registry, and health care workers.
