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.

Meeting Time:
The 2nd Thursday of every other month from 6 :00-8:00 p.m.

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

The Misericordia Siblings Association proudly presents their 20th Annual Artists In All Benefit:  Empowerment Through Art.  The exhibition and silent auction benefit for Misericordia Heart of Mercy features original artwork created by talented Misericordia resident artists with the assistance of dedicated staff and volunteers. 

"We are proud supporters and partners of Misericordia," commented Dean Hervochon, Executive Vice President of Great Lakes Clinical Trials. "Misericordia offers a continuum of care to meet the diverse needs of individuals with disabilities. They do amazing and heartfelt work."

Misericordia offers a community of care that maximizes potential for persons with mild to profound developmental disabilities, many of whom are also physically challenged.  By serving society’s most vulnerable citizens, Misericordia also serves the families who want the best for them, yet cannot provide it at home.

Through a spectrum of residential options on its 31-acre Chicago campus and in the community, and with a wide variety of programs, Misericordia currently serves more than 600 children and adults from diverse racial, religious and socio-economic backgrounds. Twenty percent of Misericordia's residents either come from poverty families or have no families and are wards of the State.

The Artist in All Beneft will be held at the Art Institute of Chicago Modern Wing, located at 159 East Monroe in Chicago.
