The second night, Wednesday, November 18 will feature: Part Two: Scientific Perspectives on Alzheimer’s Disease

Both evenings check-in and appetizers at 5:30 p.m and program begins at 6:45 and ends at 8:30 p.m

Where:

Heron Point Conference Center
665 W. North Avenue, Lombard, il 60148

There is no fee to attend, but seating is limited so please RSVP by  Tuesday November 10th to Cheryl Dawson at (847) 324-0377 or register at www.alz/illinois and click on “Education Programs”

Someone that I used to work with, Rachelle Blough is now the Director of memory care Services at Lexington and if you get a chance to talk to her while you are there, you will not regret it.  She inspired me to learn as much about the disease as I could and she continues to touch the lives of many employees and families all over the Chicago area.

As they say on the documentary – there currently is no cure, but there is HOPE.
