Long Island to benefit from Alzheimer’s expo

March 3, 2014 by  

The 10th Annual Alzheimer’s Disease Education Conference and Expo is set to provide attendees with more knowledge about the disease by dispelling some of the myths surrounding it and talking about the facts.

There are multiple panels that people can attend to hear lecturers speak on the subject and take in discussions about different ways to approach the disease and those afflicted with it. Attendees can also learn about developments in stem cell research and what scientists and doctors are doing to help create a future cure for the disease.

Not only are victims afflicted with memory loss and other issues, but their loved ones and family members must often provide care for them while they are in this vulnerable state. This can be very trying for family members or caretakers, and they might not know all of the best ways to go about handling the situation.

Organizers for this event may turn to brochure printing companies to create materials for the attendees. The people who attend this event may want pamphlets or brochures that have information about the panels they are going to be seeing. These brochures might also have some information about Alzheimer’s or a list of resources that people can contact to find help.

The expo will be held on Thursday, March 6, and runs from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm at the Melville Marriot Long Island in Farmingdale, which is not far from Hicksville, New York. There is a $45 entrance fee for the conference and a $25 entrance fee for those who only wish to attend the informational luncheon.
