You must register to follow the debates in person or virtually. In both modes there will be a certificate of participation.
The program for this fifth edition of the meeting will have four panels with experts who will address protective factors against the disease, advances in treatments, the role of caregivers and family members, in addition to public policy challenges in dementia.
Alzheimer’s is the most common form of neurodegenerative dementia in the elderly. The disease is classified into four stages, from initial to terminal. Among the most common symptoms are cognitive decline, memory loss and motor difficulties.
