CAREGIVERS CONFERENCE ON ALZHEIMER’S TO BE HELD AT A&T 

 

GREENSBORO, N.C.  –  Do you know anyone who has challenges caring for a loved one with Dementia, Alzheimer’s or another chronic disease? Do you sometimes feel the stress of being the only caregiver for your loved one?  Join North Carolina A&T State University for its 4th Annual  Alzheimer’s Disease Caregivers Conference, Saturday, Dec. 1 , from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. in the Alumni-Foundation Event Center on the campus.

The conference will include Alzheimer experts, vendors offering products and services that are important for individuals dealing with Alzheimer’s disease, door prizes, lunch,  a 15 minute Zumba Break and much more. The purpose of the conference is for attendees to acquire knowledge about Alzheimer’s disease, improve management skills and gain support from those dealing with the disease.

African Americans and other minorities are more likely to suffer from Alzheimer’s disease than Caucasians.  The African Americans and Alzheimer’s disease research study at N.C. A&T State University hopes that their research will help detect genes that can cause Alzheimer’s disease in African Americans to improve treatments and find preventions.  Alzheimer’s disease can have a devastating effect on those diagnosed and their love ones. It is important to know the warning signs and get treatment as soon as possible.  It is just as important for caregivers to know the best ways of managing the disease and how to handle the stress of care giving.

For more information about the conference, call 1-888-248-2808 or email Dr. Rosalyn Lang at rlangwal@ncat.edu.  You can also visit our website at www.ncatad.com or the Alzheimer’s Association website at www.alz.org.
