Come visit us and learn more about our efforts to advance the understanding, preventions and treatment of Alzheimer's disease.
Groups are welcome to request presentations in the community. Times, speakers and topics are dependent on availability and audience. Preference for free community talks will be given to non-profit organizations, faith, social and community groups. Revenue generating groups can also request KU ADC speakers and terms for these engagements are negotiable with the Outreach and Recruitment Director.
Healthy Aging Symposium
Americans are living longer, and the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease increases with age. Age-related cognitive changes occur naturally as well, so strategies to improve and maintain brain health are critically important. To provide information to the community on the latest recommendations for lifestyle factors and other means to improve and maintain brain health as we age, the KU Alzheimer's Disease Center partners with Johnson County Community College Health and Human Services to host an annual Healthy Aging Symposium at Johnson County Community College.
Continuing education credit is available for registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, social workers, counselors, registered dietitians, physicians, adult care home administrators, physical therapists, and occupational therapists.
For more information, contact Johnson County Community College Health and Human Services, at 913-469-3140, or go to www.jccc.edu/hhs.
The KU Alzheimer's Disease Center (ADC) co-sponsors an Annual Appreciation Breakfast with KU Endowment to show our appreciation for the support and generosity of our volunteers and donors. This two-hour event features a catered breakfast served by the KU ADC staff as well as presentations by the KU ADC researchers.
The work of our ADC would not be possible without the generosity of time and spirit as well as generous financial support of our research study participants, KU ADC Ambassadors, and donors, so the presentations highlight the innumerable ways this support has made a difference in our understanding of Alzheimer's disease and brain aging and has helped us in our fight to end Alzheimer's disease.
