Understanding the Latest on Dementia Issues

One in three seniors dies with Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia. As the U.S. population ages, the financial and societal burden of dementia will grow. NPF is producing a four-day training program on all facets of dementia, including the latest research, diagnostic tools, treatment, economic impact, caregiving and high-tech apps for patients.

The training will be held April 28-May 1 in Washington, D.C.

Support for this program is provided by AARP.
