Current research from the Alzheimer’s Association found that one in nine people age 65 and older have Alzheimer’s dementia. By 2050, it is estimated that as many as 16 million Americans will have Alzheimer’s disease, with 135 million people affected worldwide—figures that do not take into account patients’ loved ones and caretakers. The emotional and financial costs of the disease are staggering. It is for the above reason and many more that we ask you to consider sponsoring this year's 2nd Annual Grey Matters- A Symposium on Alzheimer's Research benefitting The Roskamp Institute.

Speakers at this interactive luncheon will present on a variety of topics concerning brain health, including potential treatments, lifestyle choices that help prevent degeneration, early symptom warnings, and clinical research updates.

This year’s featured speaker will be Andrew Keegan, M.D., Director of The Roskamp Institute Clinic. Key leadership from The Institute will also present the most recent Alzheimer’s research updates. Emily Walsh, publisher of Observer Media Group, will moderate the panel.
