Join us in New York City on November 3, 2014 for our Fifth Annual Fall Symposium & Luncheon at The Pierre. The Symposium & Luncheon, which kicks off National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month, will begin with an exciting science symposium led by Howard Fillit, MD, Founding Executive Director and Chief Science Officer of the Alzheimer’s Drug Discovery Foundation.
Following the symposium, we will fete restaurateur and TV lifestyle expert B. Smith (Barbara Smith) at a luncheon hosted by eight-time Emmy award-winning journalist and “On the Case with Paula Zahn” host and executive producer Paula Zahn. Smith was the first African-American woman to appear on the cover of Mademoiselle, and recently revealed her early-onset Alzheimer’s diagnosis in an interview with CBS News Chief Medical Correspondent, Jonathan LaPook, MD.
The day will also feature an appearance by Michael W. Weiner, MD, Professor of Medicine, Radiology, Psychiatry and Neurology, University of California, San Francisco, and the Principal Investigator of the Alzheimer's Disease Neuroimaging Initiative, the largest observational study in the world concerning Alzheimer's disease.
