If you or a family member have concerns about the diagnosis and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease, Mount Sinai Medical Center invites you to a public education forum at its Wien Center for Alzheimer’s Disease and Memory Disorders from 1:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Sunday, January 19.

The event at the Miami Beach Resort and Spa located at 4833 Collins Avenue attracts neurological medical experts from around the world to share new information about advances in research related to Alzheimer’s disease. The public education program includes information about the latest findings on  the use of amyloid imaging in early detection.

Research shows   Amyloid plaques can be present years  before symptoms appear, suggesting amyloid PET scans may  be useful in determining if the removal of amyloid from the brain can prevent the disease from progressing.

 Experts in brain imaging from Harvard Medical School, The University of Pennsylvania, Brown University, The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center and the Banner Alzheimer’s Institute will be on hand to answer your questions.

The event is free if you register in advance, or $5 at the door.  Visit www.mcisymposium.org or call Tatiana Vallejo at 305-674-2121, ext. 54461 for details.
