Annual Chinese Alzheimer's Forum
An annual event billed as “the largest Chinese dementia-specific educational conference in the nation” and conducted in Chinese (Mandarin) is targeted to concerned community members, healthcare professionals, and families affected by Alzheimer’s disease and related dementia. The forum is cosponsored by the University of California Memory and Aging Center and other organizations.
At the 2017 event, held on a Saturday afternoon in the Intel Auditorium in Santa Clara, CA, experts provided updates on Alzheimer’s disease and research and shared information useful to caregivers. In addition, a family caregiver shared her journey caring for her father. More than 20 agencies participated in a resources exhibit. The event was free, with respite grants available for caregiving needs. A flyer, available in English and Chinese, was used to promote the event.
