Alzheimer’s Association Programs

Center investigators work with the state chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association to provide education for health care professionals throughout the state who work with patients and families affected by dementia. For example, our faculty are regular presenters at the annual “Map through the Maze” multidisciplinary conference held in May for dementia care professionals who work in assisted living facilities, nursing homes, community agencies, hospitals and other settings. In addition, Center faculty assist with the Association’s statewide Physician and Nurse Grand Rounds program designed to educate primary care providers about dementia care. You can find more information about these types of educational events by visiting the calendar for the Alzheimer’s Association Massachusetts/New Hampshire Chapter.
