Alzheimer’s Community Care (ACC), a non-profit organization, has announced that its 2012 Alzheimer’s Educational Conference, with Keynote speaker Dan Rather, will be held May 31 and June 1, 2012, at the Palm Beach County Convention Center in Palm Beach, Florida.
This is a national conference which “offers education, support and inspiration for families living with Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia disorder, and for the health care professionals who help provide support and care to them,” the organization announced. Up to 8 CEU’s will be available for professionals.
Dan Rather’s Keynote Address will be on the topic: Overcoming Life’s Challenges, Words of Inspiration and Motivation.
“Alzheimer’s disease is the 6th leading cause of death in adults, and every 70 seconds, another diagnosis is made,” ACC states in materials about the conference.
“Be part of the education movement! Join caregivers, advocates and healthcare professionals from across the nation as we explore issues ranging from caregiver health and stress, research, behavior management, policy recommendations and more,” the organization urges.
