Educational Programs and Speakers Bureau (MADRC/CART)
The Massachusetts Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center (MADRC) and the Center for Alzheimer Research and Treatment (CART) maintain a roster of community educators and MADRC/CART faculty and staff who are available to make educational presentations. Customized educational programs can be arranged.
Programs offered in Boston and surround communities cover such topics as normal versus abnormal memory in aging, the importance of early diagnosis of Alzheimer’s and related dementias, prevention strategies for brain health, and advances in research. Presentations are also offered by community educators on topics in their areas of expertise, such as nutrition and exercise, research participation, supporting caregivers, community engagement, advanced directives, and financial concerns. Presentations by and for medical professionals are offered at conferences, hospital grand rounds, and continuing education programs.
A two-sided, full-color flyer offers information about the educational programs for community groups. Separate flyers specifically target the faith community and professionals. Two-page, full-color flyers recruit community educators and faculty/staff, respectively.
