Invite: 6th Annual Brain Health Forum - June 9

May 24, 2021
Press Release

Alzheimer's Disease remains one of the leading causes of death in America. As a doctor and former Chief Medical Officer of Sacramento County, I'm very concerned how Alzheimer's disease and other dementias take such a heartbreaking toll on our parents and grandparents, often leads to financial hardship, and can drastically alter the daily lives of the family members who care for their loved ones.

That's why my office is hosting the 6th Annual Brain Health Forum on Wednesday, June 9, 2021 from 1:00pm - 2:30pm PDT.

With special guest, the Alzheimer's Association of Northern California, this year's forum will include an update on research and legislation related to Alzheimer's and other dementias, but will primarily focus on challenges in long-term caregiving.

The Brain Health Forum will be held online via Zoom. Click here to register for the Brain Health Forum.

Dr. Heather Young - Dean Emerita, Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing, UC Davis
