Program Description


Alzheimer's disease and other dementias are not a normal part of aging. Join us to learn about the impact of Alzheimer's, the difference between Alzheimer's and dementia, the stages and risk factors, current research and treatments available for some symptoms and Alzheimer's Association resources.

With special guest speaker, Melissa J. Armstrong, MD, MSc, we will also focus on Lewy body dementia. Join us as we take a deeper dive into Lewy body dementia and how it compares to and differs from Alzheimer's other forms of dementia including similarities and differences with treatment.

Dr. Armstrong is the Director of the Mangurian Clinical-Research Headquarters for Lewy Body Dementia at the University of Florida Norman Fixel Institute for Neurological Diseases. Her clinical work and research focus on improving care for persons with Lewy body dementia and their families, including increasing Lewy body dementia recognition, identifying individual priorities for care, and improving end-of-life experiences.
