My good friends at the Alzheimer's Association asked me to post this information: The Alzheimer's Association is proud to announce our first annual family forum, to be held Sunday, August 26, 2007 from 10am - 4 pm at the Hyatt McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois. The forum will be an incredible opportunity for family members and friends of persons with dementia to come together and discover the resources that are available to them, learn about advances in Alzheimer research, gain knowledge of caregiving practices, and build camaraderie with other families facing this disease. This one day forum includes presentations on scientific research as well as information that will assist family members and friends in coping with the many aspects of the disease. Click on "family forum" above to get more details! Its a long way off, but if you are coming from out of town its better to plan early.
