Embracing Diversity and Lifestyle:  Pathways to Alzheimer’s Prevention and Care

September 30, 2024
8a.m. -1p.m.
UC San Diego ACTRI Conference Room


Thank you for joining us for this annual CME event, which highlights the cutting-edge academic and scientific environment across the UCSD campus, and the strong relationships with major scientific institutes and broad range of medical and community partners in San Diego County working to advance knowledge and clinical practice in this field of study. This conference, hosted by the UC San Diego Shiley-Marcos Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center and the San Diego Alzheimer’s Disease Resource Center for Minority Aging Research (AD-RCMAR), brings together an internationally renowned faculty from UC San Diego and local partner institutions to present the latest developments in neurodegenerative research. We look forward to having you join us to learn more about the local landscape of this ever-evolving area of research and care. 


The course has been designed to provide clinicians and community practitioners with current, evidence-based data that can be translated into clinical practice, in order to maximize therapeutic goals and optimize healthcare outcomes for patients with a variety of neurodegenerative diseases. The program will focus on the complex and diverse array of factors that impact cognition, aging, and risk for ADRD.  Our speakers will delve into the biopsychosocial impacts of lifestyle factors on the brain and the implications for researchers and clinicians working with individuals and families from diverse communities impacted by neurodegenerative diseases. We will offer a blend of synchronous and asynchronous learning.  The in-person synchronous event will invite attendees to the UC San Diego Medical Campus and the supplemental asynchronous learning will provide built-in flexibility for attendees to join from anywhere and pace their learning progress to best meet their individualized needs.
