Join Great Lakes Clinical Trials at the Memory Care Coalition of Chicago Bi-Monthly Meeting

The Memory Care Coalition of Chicago is a community of organizations, support groups, and healthcare providers, all dedicated to improving the quality of life for seniors and their caregivers.  

As seniors age and face increasing concerns about memory issues, it can be challenging to find reliable resources.  Even within our own community of providers, it can be difficult to fully understand all the services which may complement our own work.

The Memory Care Coalition of Chicago was established to collaborate, share resources, and in turn, improve access to comprehensive care options.  This often means the education of clinicians and healthcare professionals, as well as the spread of knowledge among seniors and their loved ones. 

As information, science and resources change, the Memory Care Coalition of Chicago members work together to ensure that seniors receive the best quality care and support they need as they face challenges with memory.

Steve Satek to Speak at Oklahoma City Alzheimer's Association Event

Steve Satek, President of Great Lakes Clinical Trials will be speaking on the topic of Advances in Alzheimer's Disease Research at the Oklahoma City Alzheimer's Association AWARE Luncheon.  AWARE is the Alliance of Women for Alzheimer's Research and Education, and part of the Oklahoma Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association's charge to end Alzheimer's.

A woman's brain is her most valuable asset. It controls thinking, breathing and movement. It gives you your sense of passion. Your sense of humor. Your sense of purpose. And like your purse, you take your brain with you wherever you go. You'd never leave it behind.

But Alzheimer's disease is forcing too many of us to leave our brains behind. This devastating disease places an unbalanced burden on women at work and at home, forcing us to make unwanted choices about our careers, relationships and other life decisions.

AWARE Partners pledge an annual level of support that allows the Oklahoma Chapter to provide critical care to 286,000 people dealing with Alzheimer's in the Sooner State while fueling the scientific research needed to end this disease forever.

The Oklahoma City Alzheimer's Association's 6th Annual AWARE Luncheon will be held on October 19, 2017.  Please contact Kacee VanHorn for more information 405.319.0780 or kvanhorn@alz.org

Steve Satek, President of Great Lakes Clinical Trials will join Sean Stanton, COO, Global Site Network at Bioclinica and Cathy Collins, President & CEO Clinical Consulting Solutions to present a Master Workshop at the Global Site Solution Summit.  The workshop, entitled "Going from Good to Great: Avoid the Most Common Pitfalls of Growing Your Site" will be presented on Friday, October 6, 2017 from 10:30am-12:30pm.

This will be the second year in a row that this experienced team of Clinical Research Executives will be presenting on this topic. In this workshop the presenters have started, grown, acquired clinical trial sites.  "Most people are either growing a new site or thinking about expansion," commented Steve Satek. "The gap we intend to bridge is to help people at this intersection help them see how to navigate the growth of their site more clearly. "

The 2017 Global Site Solution Summit will be held at the Boca Raton Resort and Club, a Waldorf Astoria Resort in Boca Raton Florida from October 6-8, 2017. 

For the last 12 years, the Global Site Solutions Summit has been committed to being “the site’s meeting.” The Summit provides a unique hub where sites, sponsors, CRO executives and regulators come together and share best practices, build their businesses, and develop new partnerships through debates, ideation sessions, workshops and focus groups.
