RSVP this event

It is our pleasure to invite you to an exclusive virtual event on Thursday, March 24, Cognitive Health for All - Advancing Brain Health Through Research.

Millions of individuals across the world are living with Alzheimer's disease and related dementias. There is still a great deal to learn about the human brain and how it ages over the lifespan, external factors that affect it, and potential treatments to be developed to stave off disease or prevent degeneration and Alzheimer's disease. Please join us to learn more about our work and vision for cognitive health for all!

This talk will highlight our director and associate director of the UC Davis Alzheimer's Disease Research Center who make it their life's work to understand the aging brain and the causes and treatments for Alzheimer's disease and related dementias.

The event will close with an interactive Q&A session.
