Meet Dr. Keith Fargo, Director of Scientific Programs and Outreach, Medical and Scientific Relations, with the Alzheimer’s Association. He’s one of the “brains behind saving yours.”
Following the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference held in Chicago last month, Dr. Fargo will discuss recent research as it relates to treatment for Alzheimer’s Disease and related dementias as well as care and support for families living with the disease.
With more individuals living with this disease than ever before, this is a great opportunity to hear from an expert in the field and ask your questions!
