More than 50 attendees turned out for this morning’s DFW Hospital Council (DFWHC) and Alzheimer’s Association’s educational event “Alzheimer’s Research Update: Early Detection Resources and Tools” in the main auditorium at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children in Dallas.

This complimentary seminar was highlighted by the comprehensive presentation of Dr. Mary Quiceno, associate professor of neurology at UT Southwestern Medical Center and an associate professor of medical education at Texas Christian University. Additional presenters included Rebecca Logan, PA-C of UT Southwestern Medical Center and Debra Adams of the Alzheimer’s Association Greater Dallas Chapter.

“This was a fascinating topic today,” said W. Stephen Love, president/CEO of DFWHC. “Alzheimer’s disease is an affliction suffered by more than 5 million Americans and that is just a staggering number. I appreciated these experts providing details on the disease and the ongoing research to find a cure.”
