Education and Resources
UBCH CARD holds an annual public forum (see below) in January (Alzheimer Awareness Month) to update our clinic patients, families, and the public on the current research on dementia. Our faculty has frequently provided advice and expert comments to the media regarding the newest discoveries in AD and dementia.
As part of the UBCH CARD strategy, our researchers, clinicians and staff have committed to engaging directly with our community of patients and their families. Our goal is to ensure we are meeting your needs through clear communication and openness. As part of this commitment to engagement, we invite you to view the talks from our most recent community events.
