Navigating the Journey to a Dementia Diagnosis
This mini-conference was held to discuss challenges associated with dementia diagnosis. Hear from providers experienced in diagnosing Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) and other dementias, as well as caregivers who have or are currently caring for someone living with dementia.
As cases of dementia continue to rise in our country, the importance of an accurate and early diagnosis is especially imperative. Diagnosing an individual with dementia can be very complex. For that reason, knowing the warning signs is essential for physicians, patients, and caregivers.
The video presentations are from the mini-conference held on April 28, 2021.
