Tonight’s event has been postponed due to scheduling conflicts. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Please plan to attend the next program offered by the Foothills Chapter: Healthcare Decisions, Decisions, Decisions on April 14th

“Dementia 201” is an informative presentation to provide additional information on variations of symptoms on the types of Dementia, including Alzheimer’s Disease. This presentation includes descriptions and real-life examples of the different types of Dementia. You will also see varied types of Dementia reflected in photos of PET scan results. We hope you will join us as we dive into a beyond the basics look at the forms Dementia can take.
