About the Alzheimer's Association
The Alzheimer's Association is committed to accelerating the global effort to eliminate Alzheimer's disease. We are the largest, private nonprofit funder of Alzheimer's research. We believe in the value of collaboration and are willing to imagine a time when we will have disease-modifying treatments, preventive strategies and gold-standard care for all people affected by Alzheimer's disease.

The Greater Illinois Chapter is fortunate to have a number of the nation's foremost Alzheimer's research facilities within its territory. We have worked collaboratively with this talented and dedicated research community in order to plan and educate participants of the Symposium about the latest advances in Alzheimer research.

About the Symposium:
This full-day Symposium will focus on Alzheimer's research, the leading role of the Alzheimer's Association in dementia-related research, and the importance of participation in clinical studies. World-class researchers have been invited to the conference as our keynote speakers to discuss local, national, and global research with a special focus on translating research into care. The Greater Illinois Chapter's Research Engagement Committee has developed topic specific educational sessions on the latest advancements and best practices in genetics, diagnostics, nutrition, exercise and lifestyle, therapeutics, and interventions in caring for an individual with Alzheimer's. Four continuing education credits/clock hours will be provided for health care professionals.
