SAVE THE DATE: September 9, 2017

San Diego is home to some of the best and brightest minds tackling Alzheimer’s disease across the globe. On September 9, Alzheimer’s San Diego will bring those leading scientists and physicians together for the annual Date with a Cure research forum. This event is free and open to the public, and will provide a rare opportunity to discuss Alzheimer’s and dementia with world-class experts working to find new treatments – and a cure – for this terrible disease.

We’ll update this page with more information closer to the event. Until then, learn more about last year’s fantastic Date With A Cure below.


2016 Event: September 10th
Nearly 500 guests joined us this past Saturday at the University of San Diego’s Shiley Theatre to hear leading researchers discuss treatment, cure and best of all, hope.

Our expert panel, which was made up of some of San Diego’s and the nation’s top researchers, covered topics ranging from promising clinical trials, theories on what causes Alzheimer’s, to whether or not eating chocolate can in fact improve cognitive function. Read more about what our expert panel is working on and why they have hope for a cure>>

As always, Darlene Shiley’s witty banter kept the serious discussion light and humorous, pointing out that she won’t be taking any chances and will be continuing her “strict chocolate regimen.” Read more about Darlene Shiley and why she is committed to finding a cure>>
