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 DWELLING PLACE: Women's Fellowship Brunch

Dwelling.jpg

Great Lakes Clinical Trials is proud to sponsor the launching of THE DWELLING PLACE Women's Fellowship Brunch at The Crystal Light Banquet Facility, 8400 South Cicero in Chicago on Saturday, April 1, 2017. 

Dean Hervochon, Co-Founder of Great Lakes Clinical Trials, will address the impact Alzheimer's Disease and memory loss has had on the African American population.  "Many Americans dismiss the warning signs of Alzheimer's, believing that these symptoms are a normal part of aging, commented Mr. Hervochon.  "This is of even greater concern for African-Americans, who are two times more likely to develop late-onset Alzheimer's disease than whites and less likely to have a diagnosis of their condition, resulting in less time for treatment and planning. By working together, we hope to reduce the risk factors and reverse the growing trend of Alzheimer's disease among African-Americans."

The mission of The Dwelling Place is to provide an environment of empowerment and discipleship through the gifts of hospitality, while sharing our stories and welcoming yours. The group aims to equip and provide for women and children in need of restorative care through various resources. Dedicated women, committed to the call.

The brunch is at no cost. The event is non-denominational and ALL ARE WELCOME!  

For more information, contact Dean Hervochon at (773) 275-3500 or info@greatlakesclinicaltrials.com
